    Technical analysis of GBP/USD for July 29, 2015

    The cable managed to extend gains for the 3rd session in a row after the UK GDP figures had hit the wires.

    Analysts are optimistic about the UK economy. The gross domestic product (GDP) is the main indicator of economic growth. The GDP is estimated to increase by 0.7% in the second quarter (Apr to June) 2015 compared with the 0.4% growth in the first quarter (Jan to Mar) 2015.

    The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index, which had improved in June, declined in July. The Index stands at 90.9 now, down from 99.8 in June. Ahead of the FOMC meeting, US economy delivered negative readings.

    Today, traders eye the FOMC meeting. We expect impulsive moves during a day.
