  • The British gained bids near 1.2505 against the Swiss Franc and traded higher.
  • Earlier, the GBPCHF pair fell after breaking a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart.
  • Today in the UK, the Gross Domestic Product was released by the National Statistics.

GBPCHF Technical Analysis

The British Pound spiked higher against the Swiss Franc after the release of the Gross Domestic Product. The GBPCHF surged and broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the 1.2676 high to 1.2505 low.

GBPCHF Technical Analysis

Before the GBPCHF pair under pressure and also fell below a bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart. The same trend line along with the 21 hourly simple moving average may act as a resistance.

There is a chance of a reaction near the highlighted resistance of 1.2600, but the bulls may also break it going forward.

UK GDP

Today in the UK, the Gross Domestic Product, which is a measure of the total value of all goods and services produced by the UK was released by the National Statistics.

The market was expecting a rise of 0.6% in the GDP in Q2 2016, compared with the previous quarter. However, the result was encouraging, as there was an increase of 0.7%. The report stated that “GDP in current prices increased by 1.5% between Quarter 1 2016 and Quarter 2 2016, revised down 0.1 percentage points from the previously published estimate. The households and non-profit institutions serving households saving ratio was estimated to be 5.1% in Quarter 2 2016 compared with 5.6% in Quarter 1 2016. In 2015, the saving ratio was estimated to be 6.1%“.

Overall, the British Pound may rise from the current levels, and if there is a break above 1.2600, more gains are feasible.
