Trading volumes today might be lower with the Labor Day weekend in the US, resulting in reduced trading, which can cause more volatility on thinner volume. September also features more overall volatility, and traders should monitor their stop loss levels more carefully. The first trading week of the month will start slow, but activity is set to accelerate. Traders should remain patient and not rush into executing orders until volumes pick up.
The forecast for the EUR/GBP remains bearish after it failed to extend its advance. Price action was rejected by its descending Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Cloud, which maintains the longer-term downtrend. The Kijun-sen turned sideways, and the Tenkan-sen is expected to follow suit after the CCI moved out of extreme overbought territory. It has more downside potential, and the selling pressure may increase over the following trading sessions.
