GBP/USD Analysis

The price managed to break up above the resistance at 1.6619, stayed above there for a few hours and then fell sharply from a new multi-year high of 1.6667 on Friday. This morning the price has been rising but at one point was only about 25 pips from the key support level of 1.6450, which flipped from resistance to support last Wednesday.

The overall bias should still be long as we are still established in a narrowing bullish channel that has been intact since last summer, as can be seen from the daily chart below:

GBPUSD Daily 12714

After such a strong breakout, and as 1.6450 has already flipped from resistance to support, it seems advisable to look for a long off a return to 1.6450. , which is very confluent with today’s GMY daily S1 pivot point at 1.3644. There may be a good resistance level above 1.6650, but I would not be looking for a short from there just yet.

GBPUSD H1 12714

There is no important news due today for the GBP but there is for the USD: U.S. New Home Sales at 3pm London time.
