The GBPUSD has continued its decline this morning, moving lower after retracing to resistance. Today’s range resistance is located at the R3 Camarilla pivot found at a price of 1.5195. After failing to break through resistance, prices have quickly declined through the 46 pip trading range back to support at the S3 pivot found at a price of 1.5149. If prices remain supported at this point, it would suggest that the current downtrend may at least temporarily be stalled. However, if prices continue to decline, it may suggest that the GBPUSD is set to close lower for the 7th time in the last 8 trading sessions.

If the GBPUSD continues to decline further, traders will look for a breakout below the S4 pivot point which is found at a price of 1.5126. A 1x extension of today’s range places preliminary targets for a bearish breakout at 1.5080. Alternatively, in the event of a price reversal, the GBPUSD would be expected to move back through values of resistance. This would include the R4 pivot found at 1.5218. A move to this point would be significant as it would be the first bullish breakout since September 17th. In either breakout scenario, traders should look to conclude any open range based positioning, and adapt their strategy with the markets chosen direction.
