GBP/USD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3223; (P) 1.3279; (R1) 1.3337; More…

No change in GBP/USD’s outlook as recovery from 1.3101 is in progress and could extend higher. But upside is expected to be limited by 1.3471 resistance to bring fall resumption. On the downside, break of 1.3101 will resume the whole decline from 1.4376 and target 61.8% retracement of 1.1946 to 1.4376 at 1.2875 next.

In the bigger picture, current development suggests that whole medium term rebound from 1.1936 (2016 low) has completed at 1.4376 already, with trend line broken firmly, on bearish divergence condition in daily MACD, after rejection from 55 month EMA (now at 1.4177). 61.8% retracement of 1.1936 (2016 low) to 1.4376 at 1.2874 is the next target. We’ll pay attention to the reaction from there to asses the chance of long term down trend resumption. For now, outlook will stay bearish as long as 55 day EMA (now at 1.3507) holds, even in case of strong rebound.
