GBPUSD Strength Expected

Daud Bhatti

GBPUSD Short Term Elliott Wave view suggests that the rally from 3.1.2018 low (1.371) is unfolding as a 5 waves impulse Elliott Wave Structure. Up from 3.1.2018 low, Minor wave 1 ended at 1.4245 and Minor wave 2 ended at 1.3964. Pair has since broken above Minor wave 1 at 1.4245, suggesting that the sequence from 3.1.2018 low is bullish and the next leg higher in Minor wave 3 has started. Minor wave 3 is in progress with internal subdivision as 5 waves impulse of lower degree. Up from 1.3964, Minutte wave (i) ended at 1.4022, Minutte wave (ii) ended at 1.3981, Minutte wave (iii) ended at 1.422, and Minutte wave (iv) ended at 1.4144. more…

GBP/USD Congestion Zone 1.3866-1.3916

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/USD has been consolidating within the 1.3866-1.3916 zone and we can see a clear congestion without any clear breakout to the upside. UK January CPI remained at 3.0% contrary to the 2.9 % forecast. Technically the price has been supported at 1.3866-76 and while the price bias remains bullish, the pair needs to make a strong 1h candle above 1.3920 in order to proceed further up. Clear break or 4h close above 1.3920 should target 1.3942, 1.3983 eventually reaching 1.4035 W H4 level. However a break below 1.3840 might go for a retest of 1.3799. more…

GBP/USD Hits New Post-Brexit High As Dollar Extends Drop

Fawad Razaqzada

The big news today is that the dollar’s losses have sharply accelerated, but without any fresh news. The economic calendar is light and US stock markets will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King Day. This hasn’t stopped the Dow futures from melting up another 140 points. It goes to show that in low-volume days like today, it is even harder to resist against a strong trend. The markets simply drift in the trend direction as resting stop orders above (in the case of stock indices) or below the market (in the case of the dollar), attract prices towards them. In dollar’s slipstream, the GBP/USD has hit a new post-Brexit high of more…

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: More Upside

Daud Bhatti

GBPUSD Short Term Elliott Wave view suggests that the rally from 8/24 low is unfolding as an impulse Elliott Wave structure. Up from 8/24 low (1.2773), Minor wave 1 ended at 1.2979 and Minor wave 2 ended at 1.2851. Minor wave 3 is in progress and the subdivision is unfolding as an impulse Elliott Wave structure.

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…
