    Tracks equity market ahead of Yellen testimony

    The spot simply followed the uptick in the European stocks, hence paid little attention to the weaker-than-expected UK manufacturing production data. Moreover, the slowdown in the activity was already well known and priced-in.

    The markets now await Yellen testimony. Markets would be interested to see if the Fed’s take on the ongoing financial market turmoil and timing of the next rate hike.

    GBP/USD Technical Levels

    The immediate resistance is seen at 1.4610 (weekly 5-MA), above which prices could target 1.4668 (Feb 4 high). On the other hand, a break below 1.4529 (23.6% of 1.4079-1.4668) would shift risk in favor of a drop to 1.4435 (daily low).
