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…

EUR/GBP Indecision Between Trend Line Diagonals

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/GBP has been trapped within the narrow range of W L3 and W H3 Pivot. Slow price action indicates that we might expect a breakout when volatility gets higher. At this point, the price is stalling between the two trend line diagonals that also intersect essential pivot points. Break of W H3 – 0.8737 should target 0.8760 and possibly 0.8792. However a break of D L3 – 0.8710 should target 0.8680. The EUR/GBP ATR is low, so pay attention to breakouts and corresponding targets. more…

GBP/JPY Possible Inverted Dead Cat Bounce On A Trend Line Break

Nenad Kerkez

After a typical Monday price action that was triggered by the Yen weakness the GBP/JPY continued to rise but it failed to reach W H5. A sudden drop in price and a close below EMA89 and W H4, with an interim consolidation suggests that this could be an inverted dead cat bounce pattern. POC rejections could happen within 149.25-55 zone. If the price closes below the trend line we could see a move towards 148.68 and 148.25 so the pattern will be validated. Target is 148.25. However, if the price spikes above 149.97 we might see 150.67 and the pattern will become invalid. 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…

Daud Bhatti

GBPUSD Short Term Elliott Wave view suggests that pair ended Intermediate wave (2) at 1.33 on 16 December 2017. Up from there, Intermediate wave (3) rally is unfolding as 5 waves impulse Elliott Wave structure where Minor wave 1 ended at 1.3613, Minor wave 2 ended at 1.3456, Minor wave 3 ended at 1.3943, Minor wave 4 ended at 1.3797, and Minor wave 5 of (3) ended at 1.434. 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/JPY Diving Board Reversal Pattern

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/JPY has formed a variation of a V-shaped pattern named “Diving Board”. The diving board is a reversal pattern that forms after the price makes a flat base than drops down with a high momentum that is followed by a straight-line run-up. V-shaped reversal is created, and the price proceeds up. At this point, we can see two POC zones. The first POC is 149.00-149.10 (D H3, W H3, Order block). Because of the strong trend that we can spot, the first POC zone could show a rejection if the price retraces. If we see a broader retracement below POC1 than pay attention to POC2 (50.0, EMA89, W L3) 148.35-148.66. Rejections from any of POC zones should target 149.90 and 150.47. 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.
