GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2132; (P) 1.2173; (R1) 1.2207; More

GBP/USD lose some downside momentum as seen in 4 hour MACD. But intraday bias stays on the downside with 1.2213 minor resistance intact. Current decline should target 1.1946/86 key support zone next. As noted before, consolidation pattern from 1.1946 should have completed with three waves to 1.2705 already. Break of 1.1946 will confirm our bearish view and resume the larger down trend. On the upside, above 1.2213 minor resistance will turn bias neutral and bring recovery. But outlook will remain cautiously bearish as long as 1.2346 support turned resistance holds.

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 bottoming 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.
