GBP/USD (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

The traders’ attention will be focused on the industrial production. The PMI manufacturing index showed a decline to the level of 52.5%, indicating the industrial sector slowdown. We expect the data output slightly worse than the forecasted medians which will add pressure on the British pound.

Sellers managed to break through the support level of 1.5200 which currently acts as a resistance. A consolidation below the level 1.5300 and the resistance level of 1.5200 will last till the GDP fundamental data output.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5200, the next one is 1.5100. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5300, the next one is at 1.5400.

There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD histogram is in a positive territory. The price is growing.
