GBPUSD Technical Highlights, Prices and Analysis

  • Sterling climbs above moving averages.
  • Positive trend remains in place.

We have recently released our Q4 Trading Forecasts for a wide range of Currencies and Commodities, including GBPUSD with our fundamental and medium-term term technical outlook.

Short-Term GBPUSD Chart Supports Higher Prices

Cable crossed back above all three moving averages on Friday and is currently trading just off its best level of the week, despite US dollar strength. The pair also traded back above the 23.60% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.3067, although a close above this level would give the move more validity, while the uptrend remains intact and supportive. To keep the trend intact, the pair need to take out this Monday’s high at 1.31175, which should leave a short-term target at 1.32178 ahead of 1.32986.

The daily chart paints a slight less rosy picture with GBPUSD battling with the 20-day moving average just under 1.3100. However the break-out from the short-term downtrendwill give bulls confidence in higher prices with the September 20 high at 1.32986 and the 38.20% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.33170 the next levels of resistance.
