GBPUSD bounces off local support

13:22 7 December 2022

In recent days GBPUSD moved further away from six-month high of $1.2355 reached earlier this month as recession fears sparked demand for safe haven assets including US dollar. Also the outlook for the sterling remains clouded by fears of a domestic recession. BOE Governor Andrew Bailey has been warning markets that tightening expectations is overdone with the UK toppling into a two-year recession. Nevertheless today we can observe some dollar weakness which enables the GBPUSD pair to bounce off the local support at 1.2150. Nevertheless, the main sentiment remains bearish, therefore a move towards 1.20 level or even key support 1.1865 cannot be ruled out.
