GBP/USD (a 4-hour chart)

GBP/USD (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

We do not expect the indicator revision upwards from the adjusted UK GDP release for the 3rd quarter. The release can be at the level of the forecasted medians. The moderately positive durable goods orders release can support the US dollar demand, but we cannot count on the strong dollar growth as traders ignored the positive US GDP release.

The British pound has been consolidating at the support level of 1.5660 practically for two weeks. The pound sharply increased yesterday.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

There is a non-confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is in the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

If the price falls it will get to 1.5660.
