Show full picture


The daily closure below the recent bottoms located around 1.5540-1.5560 rendered the previous consolidation range as a bearish flag pattern with the projection target at 1.5300.

The market has already pushed further below reaching down to 1.5030-1.4980 where the lower limit of the channel provided support for the pair few weeks ago.

Recently, the H4 chart showed a transition phase into a sideway movement that has been maintained within the depicted price range.

On February 5, initial bullish breakout above 1.5220 took place. Shortly after, a new DAILY support was established around 1.5170-1.5200 (an ascending bottom, a sign of ongoing bullish momentum).

Since then, the GBP/USD pair has been trending upwards within the depicted H4 channel. Persistence of the pair above the recent DAILY support (the price zone of 1.5170-1.5200) applied extensive bullish pressure over the price level of 1.5360 (61.8% Fibonacci level on the H4 chart) which did not provide enough RESISTANCE.

The long-term projection target for the recent bullish breakout above 1.5220 is located around 1.5500-1.5550 where the previous DAILY bottoms are located (DAILY RESISTANCE).

Trading recommendations:

As long as bulls keep defending the recent SUPPORT around 1.5350, they should keep targeting at 1.5460 and 1.5580.

For traders who missed the initial breakout, a valid buy entry can be taken at retesting of 1.5260 with SL located below the recent bottom around 1.5200.
