GBP/USD sees establishment above 1.2500, Fed-BOE policy in focus
The GBP/USD pair has attempted a rebound from 1.2473 in the early Tokyo session and is looking to sustain above the psychological resistance of 1.2500. The cable has gained some strength as the US dollar index (DXY) is witnessing some stellar long liquidation after reaching elevated levels.
The DXY seems unable to recapture its 19-year high at 103.93 as clouds of uncertainty over the rate hike decision by the Federal Reserve (Fed) are fading away. A risk-on impulse is finding some attraction and risk-sensitive currencies are gaining momentum. The DXY has done a test below 103.50, at the press time and is likely to skid further. The extremely overbought situation in the momentum oscillators has supported the DXY bears to play the road, at least for a while.
