Bears Remain In The Driver’s Seat

GBPUSD TECHS
  • RES 4: 1.2865 High Mar 11
  • RES 3: 1.2803 High Mar 21
  • RES 2: 1.2574/2709 20-day EMA / High Apr 09
  • RES 1: 1.2540 Low Apr 2 / 1
  • PRICE: 1.2465 @ 17:02 BST Apr 18
  • SUP 1: 1.2406 Low Apr 17
  • SUP 2: 1.2364 61.8% retracement of the Oct 4 - Mar 8 bull leg
  • SUP 3: 1.2266 Low Nov 14 ‘23
  • SUP 4: 1.2239 76.4% retracement of the Oct 4 - Mar 8 bull leg

The trend condition in GBPUSD remains bearish and the pair is trading closer to its recent lows. The recent breach of 1.2519, Feb 5 low, strengthens a bearish theme and signals a stronger reversal. Moving average studies are in a bear-mode set-up and this highlights a clear short-term downtrend. Scope is seen for an extension towards 1.2364, a Fibonacci retracement. On the upside, key resistance has been defined at 1.2709, the Apr 10 high.
