GBP/USD Progressive Bearish Channel Formed

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/USD has rejected perfectly from 1.3440 as seen in my Session Recap webinar analysis of the German election impact and made a U-turn continuing with a bearish progressive channel zigzag. 1.3435-55 is the first POC zone (D L1,W L3 order block 38.2) and 1.3470-85 is the POC2 (D H3, EMA89, 50.0). Both zones could reject the price towards 1.3400 and 1.3379. Break of daily low at 1.3363 could move the price to 1.3353 and below we might expect a breakout towards the 1.3318-00 zone. more…

GBPUSD: BOE Decision Important Levels

Nenad Kerkez

The Bank of England MPC decision is due at 11 PM GMT. Market is expecting that policymakers leave interest rates at 0.25 %. But what traders and investors should be focused at is how many of policymakers will vote for a hike and how many will be against the hike. Technically the GBP/USD is in uptrend but that can easily change after today’s data and MPC official bank rate votes. 1.3270-85 is the important zone (W H3, D H4, ATR projection high) and the price could reject from the zone once the zone is hit. If the price proceeds above the zone 1.3330-1.3365 more…

GBPUSD Weekly L3 And D H4 Confluence In Downtrend

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/USD broke below 1.2020, the weekly L3 level, thus turning the support into a resistance. After a short breakout that I showed on live trading webinar yesterday, the pair started to retrace towards the POC zone 1.2830-50 (Order block, ATR high, trend line, D H5, EMA89). The price could reject there towards the 1.2880 and 1.2770. Only a break below 1.2768 could spur additional weakness in the pair towards 1.2740 zone. The market is calm at this point but the increased volatility is expected during the 2017 Economic Symposium, “Fostering a Dynamic Global Economy”, which will take place Aug. 24-26, 2017 at Jackson Hole, WY. more…

Ending Diagonal On GBPUSD Indicates A Strong Reversal; Bears May Take Over

Grega Horvat

On the 4h chart of GBPUSD we are observing final stages of an ending diagonal where final leg up can be now in progress. We are tracking wave C) after nice turn up from wave B) support levels, found near 1.2800. So far, that’s clearly an impulsive reaction up, a very strong one, so we should be aware of even higher levels at the start of the week. There is a chance that market will rise to second resistance area seen at 1.3200/1.3250. more…

GBPUSD Trading In A Big Correction

Gregor Horvat

GBPUSD is moving sideways after pair recovered from that 1.1500 spike low where we see a completed wave three, so current structure is an ongoing fourth wave which can see more upside as we think that market can be in an A-B-C structure. That said, wave B triangle looks completed and current rally may be wave C, which can see limited upside around 38.2. more…

GBP/USD Stuck Between A Rock And A Hard Place

Fawad Razaqzada

On this day of last week, the pound had rallied by a cool 300 pips against the US dollar as investors welcomed news of a snap election in the UK, announced by UK Prime Minister Theresa May. Market participants apparently came to the conclusion that Theresa May will have a stronger mandate to secure the UK’s EU exit from the EU as she will be able to push back hard deadlines for a trade deal until the next election in 2022, assuming she wins this one. But after that sharp rally, the more…
