GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3469; (P) 1.3540; (R1) 1.3588; More…..

Intraday bias in GBP/USD remains neutral for the moment. As long as 4 hour 55 EMA (now at 1.3468) holds, further rally is expected. Above 1.3612 will target 1.3651 key resistance first. Break will resume medium term rise from 1.1946 and target key resistance level at 1.3835. However, sustained break of 4 hour 55 EMA will turn focus back to 1.3300 support.

In the bigger picture, while the medium term rebound from 1.1946 low was strong, it’s limited below 1.3835 key support turned resistance. As long as 1.3835 holds, we’d view such rebound as a correction. That is, we’d expect another leg in the long term down trend through 1.1946 low. However, sustained break of 1.3835 should at least send GBP/USD to 38.2% retracement of 2.1161 (2007 high) to 1.1946 (2016 low) at 1.5466.
