FX Reversals: GBPUSD Breakout Update

(Created using FXCM’s Marketscope 2.0 charts)

Suggested Reading: Trading Intraday Market Reversals

The GBPUSD continues to be in focus this week, with today’s event risk revolving around the conclusion of the Scottish independence referendum. Running into the London close, the GBPUSD has broken to a higher highs over its R4 camarilla pivot. Price is now trading well above the R4 pivot, with breakout traders first focusing on a 1x extension of the camarilla pivot range to a price of 1.6390. If current momentum trends continue, traders may also select to initiate new buy positions.

As in any trading scenario revolving around the news, price may reverse on increased volatility. A move back under today’s R3 range resistance pivot at 1.6299 would signal a strong change in market conditions. Traders would then look at the possibility of a move back to initial price support at 1.6238 and then a further reversal below final support at 1.6208
