British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) starting to drift as the demand for dollars returns
The Pound has taken a belting consequent to the disorder, a dynamic compounded by the roaring greenback, to trade at 12 month lows this week.
The fortunes for the pound don’t appear good, but if there is a surprisingly strong outcome to the Brexit negotiations, perhaps a bounce in the GBP/USD is overdue.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.31.
The projected upper bound is: 1.29.
The projected lower bound is: 1.25.
The projected closing price is: 1.27.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 1 white candles and 8 black candles for a net of 7 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 18 white candles and 31 black candles for a net of 13 black candles.
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 24.4931. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 0 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 24.06. This is where it usually bottoms. The RSI usually forms tops and bottoms before the underlying security. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 35 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -87. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 10 period(s) ago.

FOREX GBP= is currently 6.3% below its 200-period moving average and is in an downward trend. Volatility is extremely low when compared to the average volatility over the last 10 periods. There is a good possibility that there will be an increase in volatility along with sharp price fluctuations in the near future. Our volume indicators reflect moderate flows of volume out of GBP= (mildly bearish). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on GBP= and have had this outlook for the last 22 periods. Our momentum oscillator is currently indicating that GBP= is currently in an oversold condition.
