GBPUSD daily price chart 18-03-20 Zoomed in

From the daily chart, we noticed that on March 10 GBP/USD declined then closed below the 50-day average generating a bearish signal. Later on, the price slid from a trading zone to a lower, emphasizing the bearish outlook of the market then settled in current trading zone 1.1550 – 1.2364.

This week, GBPUSD pointed lower eyeing a test of the low end of the zone. Further close below this level could send Cable to 1.1250. Yet, the psychological support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

That said, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone reflects bears hesitation and could lead bears to exit the market, allowing GBPUSD to rally towards the high end of the zone. Further close above this level may cause a further rally towards 1.2589. In that scenario, the daily resistance area marked on the chart should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, any break above 1.2195 might cause a rally towards 1.2300. Nevertheless, the daily resistance level printed on the chart should be monitored.
