GBPUSD and EURUSD: British pound received a new charge of vigor. Euro continues to stagnate after mixed service sector reports

The British pound continues to hit highs after news that the Conservative Party could get a majority in Parliament in the December 12 general election. Such a scenario will allow incumbent Prime Minister Boris Johnson to secede from the EU and bring into play the agreed Brexit plan.
In the morning, I noticed that according to the Kantar report, the ruling Conservative Party of Great Britain increased its margin from the Labour Party to 12 points, which supports the pound, as it changes investors’ attitude to risk for the better. But do not forget that the closer we get to the election date, the more attention investors will pay to the survey results.
The pound buyers’ optimism was also filled with enthusiasm by the UK services activity report, which was revised upward after preliminary data. Despite the fact that the index is below the mark of 50 points, it showed a slight increase in November from a preliminary estimate. According to the IHS Markit report, the index of procurement managers for the UK services sector was 49.3 points in November against a preliminary estimate of 48.6 points. However, one growth to the level of 50 points is clearly not…

U.S. Service Sector Growth Slows More Than Expected In November

A report released by the Institute for Supply Management on Wednesday showed the pace of growth in U.S. service sector activity slowed by more than anticipated in the month of November. The ISM said its non-manufacturing index dipped to 53.9 in November after climbing to 54.7 in October. While a reading above 50 still indicates service sector growth, economists had expected the index to edge down to 54.5. “The non-manufacturing sector had a slight pullback in November,” said Anthony Nieves, Chair of the ISM Non-Manufacturing Business Survey Committee. He added, “The respondents hope for a resolution on tariffs and continue to be hampered by constraints in labor resources.” The bigger than expected decrease by the headline index was partly due to a steep drop by the business activity index, which tumbled to 51.6 in November from 57.0 in October. Meanwhile, the new orders index rose to 57.1 in November from 55.6 in October and the employment index climbed to 55.5 from 53.7. The report said the prices index also increased to 58.5 in November from 56.6 in October, indicating a faster rate of price growth. On Monday, the ISM released a separate report showing U.S. manufacturing activity contracted for the…

Technical analysis recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on December 4

Economic calendar (Universal time)
In today’s economic calendar, you need to pay attention to the following events:
9:30 (UK) – data on indexes of business activity in the services sector;
13:15 (USA) – change in the number of people employed in the non-agricultural sector;
15:00 (USA) – Procurement Managers Index for the non-manufacturing sector;
15:30 (USA) – crude oil reserves.
The strength of the resistance that was met yesterday (area 1.1082 daily Kijun + weekly Fibo Kijun + upper border of the daily cloud) managed to delay the further development of players to the upside. As a result, there has been inhibition, which can lead to the formation of rebound. In this case, support can be 1.1055-61 (weekly Tenkan + daily Fibo Kijun) and 1.1030-37 (lower boundary of the daily cloud + daily Tenkan). Now, breaking through the encountered resistance (1.1082) and the liquidation of the daily cross (1.1102), as noted earlier, will open the way to the most significant resistance of this area at 1.1145 (monthly Tenkan + weekly Kijun).
On the other hand, both key levels of low halves (1.1080 central pivot level + 1.1033 weekly long-term trend) are currently reinforced by important…
