USD/GBP (GBP=X) Forecast to 1.3200
From a technical perspective, the pair remains close to its immediate strong hurdle near mid-1.3400s, which if cleared decisively would suggest a bullish breakout and accelerate the recovery move. Above the mentioned barrier, the pair is likely to surpass the key 1.3500 psychological mark and head towards an important congestion area near the 1.3550-1.3600 region.
Alternatively, retracement from current resistance zone, leading to a subsequent break back below the 1.3400 handle might prompt some additional long-unwinding and drag the pair further towards the ascending trend-channel support, currently near the 1.3350-45 region. A follow-through weakness might negate prospects of any further recovery and turn the pair vulnerable to break below the 1.3300 handle and head towards retesting its next major support near mid-1.3200s.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.36.
The projected upper bound is: 1.36.
The projected lower bound is: 1.32.
The projected closing price is: 1.34.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 8 white candles and 2 black candles for a net of 6 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 24 black candles for a net of 1 white 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.
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
