The GBPUSD is attempting to breakout higher this morning, and close the week on newly created highs. The pair has gained momentum after the Fed declined to raise rates in yesterday’s FOM rate decision. Price action is currently trading above today’s 78 pip trading range, which starts at the R3 Camarilla pivot seen below at a price of 1.5626. The next value of resistance for the pair stands at the R4 pivot at a price of 1.5665. A move beyond this value would mark the 3rd bullish breakout over the last three trading sessions. If a breakout does occur, traders can begin targeting a 1x extension of today’s range towards a price of 1.5743.

In the event that prices fail to breakout to a new high, traders will look for prices to drop back inside of the previously mentioned range. In this scenario, prices must first drop below the R3 pivot before potentially challenging values of support. It should be noted that range support is found at 1.5548. A decline below this point, to the S4 pivot at 1.5509, would be considered significant. A bearish reversal to this value would bring the pair back at Pre-FOMC event prices, and open the GPBUSD up to further price declines.

Camarilla pivots can be helpful for evaluating support and resistance for day trading. To learn more about pivots, and how to identify intraday price reversals, continue your education with DailyFX HERE.
