UK100 hits all take-profit levels
The UK100 which tracks the benchmark FTSE100 index soared through the bullish intra-day price targets this morning.
Profit target hit: YES, 4 out of 4 profit targets have been hit.
Why: The UK100 has an inverse relationship with the British pound. A weaker pound is bullish for the index.

AUDUSD selloff rewards 30 pips
AUDUSD tumbled like a house of cards, sliding past and beyond all the pre-defined take profit levels.

GBPUSD bears halted by BoE
In our trade of the week, we discussed whether the GBPUSD was on the brink of a major breakout. On Thursday morning prices started to move with the BoE policy decision sparking volatility.
Profit target hit: NO, but bears came close to hitting 1.2600 level.
Why: Despite tumbling on Wednesday evening, prices rebounded following the BoE decision on Thursday. UK rates were left unchanged, but BoE Governor stated more evidence was needed before lowering rates.
Technical forces: Prices back within range but weakness below the 50-day SMA may support bears.
Bonus: Will USDInd bullish setup be triggered?
Last Friday, the USDInd hijacked our attention due to the heavy-hitting events this week. After swinging within a range, a breakout could be around the corner.
Profit target hit: NO, but prices are testing the 103.70 resistance.
Why: Dollar boosted by Fed’s hawkish remarks and falling odds of rate cut in March. NFP on Friday in focus.
Technical forces: Daily close above 103.70 may open a path towards the 100-day SMA at 104.40.
