GBP/USD Technical Analysis:  Showing Signs of Bullish Persistence

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Showing Signs of Bullish Persistence

Talking Points:

Cable is holding above the 100-DMA and shows multiple signs of life for the Bulls as the USD continues its descent toward new 2017 lows. The stability above the Ichimoku Cloud provides credibility to those who bought GBP/USD after PM Theresa May spelled out the U.K.’s plan for Brexit last month. Naturally, the question has turned to the sustainability of the nearly ~5% move off the 2017 low.

The market still anticipates the triggering of article 50 by the end of March. Despite Tuesday’s move to a two-week low at 1.23460 (50% of the Mid-January to early February move,) there is still hope for further upside based on the continual re-coupling of the extreme bearish sentiment, which is currently at 25% on the DSI as of Tuesday’s close. Given that the USD currently sits at 70% on Jake Bernstein’s futures sentiment index for Dollar futures and Sterling futures, there is still upside potential based on a reversion to the mean of extreme sentiment.

While Sterling still has its fundamental challenges, as does the US, but we can utilize recent pivots on the price charts to help us build a bias going forward. Tuesday’s two-week low and 50% retracement move aligns with the Daily Ichimoku Cloud that looks to be rebounding as RSI(5) on the daily chart moves higher off a rising Trendline.

There remains clear resistance at 1.27/28 as you can see on the chart with the December closing high and early February high of 1.2706. In addition to the rising RSI(5), and apparent support of the Ichimoku cloud and 50% Fibonacci retracement, it’s worth keeping an eye on Andrew’s Pitchfork that is drawn on the chart below.

The AP is drawn off the closing low where there was a momentum spike alongside the price pivots in December and January. The important takeaway of the AP is the rising slope of the median line, which turns our focus toward resistance, which sits near 1.28, and a further break higher could turn focus toward 1.30. Currently, SSI is standing in the way of this extension higher from a contrarian indicator perspective. A move to negative SSI would favor a move higher along with what is seen on the daily chart.
