Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Sep 25 GBP/USD declined to a lower trading zone 1.2150 -1.2360 eyeing a test of the low end of it. At the start of the month, sellers showed hesitation pulling back above 50-day average.

Hence, any close above the high end of the zone could push GBP/USD towards 1.2550. Although, the daily and weekly resistance underscored on the chart (zoomed in) need to be watched closely. Check the chart to know more about key levels in a further bullish move.

On the other hand, a close below 50-day average would be a bearish signal. Further close below the low end of the zone could see GBPUSD trading towards 1.1800. Nevertheless, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.

From the daily chart, we notice on Sep 25 GBP/JPY moved to a lower trading zone, since then the price has been declining towards the low end of current trading zone 130.90 – 133.40 as discussed in our last update.

Thus, if sellers clear the support area (between 50- day Average and 130.84) then any close below 130.84 could press GBPJPY towards the vicinity of 129.00-128.80. That said, sellers should pay a close attention to the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in).

On the flip-side, any failure in clearing the support area may reveres current direction sending GBPJPY towards the high end of the zone. See the chart to know more about higher trading zone/s with the key levels to consider in a further bullish move.
