It ain’t looking so gloomy for the British pound these days!

The new PM in town appears to be bringing a bit of relief to the bond markets, as investors seem confident that economic stability might be restored under Sunak’s leadership.

Not only did Cable pop sharply higher off its triangle bottom, but the pair also gapped higher to test the resistance at the 1.1400 major psychological mark.

A bit more bullish energy might be needed to bust higher, though, as the pair is filling the gap and could still dip back to the bottom.

The moving averages are holding as dynamic support around the 1.1300 handle at the moment and might be enough to spur another test of resistance.

Meanwhile, economic data from the U.S. hasn’t been so upbeat, as the manufacturing and services PMIs tumbled sharply. Could this be enough to discourage the Fed from hiking aggressively again?

If traders think so, GBP/USD might be able to break above the triangle top and go for a rally that’s the same height as the chart pattern.

That’d be close to 500 pips, so y’all better not miss it!
