GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2924; (P) 1.2976; (R1) 1.3009; More…

GBP/USD’s fall from 1.3042 accelerates to as low as 1.2854 so far and focus in on 1.2844 minor support. Firm break there will confirm completion of the corrective rebound from 1.2661. In such case, deeper fall should be seen to retest 1.2661. Decisive break there will resume larger down trend from 1.4376. On the upside, above 1.3042 will bring another rise. But upside should be limited by 1.3316 fibonacci level to bring near term reversal.

In the bigger picture, whole medium term rebound from 1.1946 (2016 low) should have completed at 1.4376 already, after rejection from 55 month EMA (now at 1.4099). The structure and momentum of the fall from 1.4376 argues that it’s resuming long term down trend. And this will be the preferred case as long as 38.2% retracement of 1.4376 to 1.2661 at 1.3316 holds. However, firm break of 1.3316 would bring stronger rebound to 61.8% retracement at 1.3721. And, the eventual depth of the fall from 1.4376, and the chance of hitting 1.1946 low, will depend on the strength of the interim corrective rebound from 1.2661.
