GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2913; (P) 1.2950; (R1) 1.2974; More

GBP/USD drops sharply today but stays above 1.2830 minor support so far. Intraday bias is neutral first. Another rise cannot be ruled out, but upside momentum is clearly weak with bearish divergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Also, current rally is seen as part of the corrective pattern from 1.1946. Hence, even in case of another rally, we’ll look for reverse signal above 1.2987. Meanwhile, break of 1.2830 support will indicate short term topping. In such case, intraday bias will be turned back to the downside for 1.2614 support.

In the bigger picture, fall from 1.7190 is seen as part of the down trend from 2.1161. There is no sign of medium term reversal yet. Sustained trading below 61.8% projection of 2.1161 to 1.3503 from 1.7190 at 1.2457 will target 100% projection at 0.9532. Overall, break of 1.3444 resistance is needed to confirm medium term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish.
