GBP/USD: the pair will continue to trade in the downward channel

December 30, 2014

Current trend

There is the lull in the market during New Year holidays. Due to lack of the macro-economic news, the pair GBP/USD is under influence of the trading sentiments. It is worth noting that despite the fact that the USD is significantly overbought, the demand on the American currency remains high. On Monday the pair slowly went down to the level of 1.5500; nevertheless this morning the Pound has won back some of the losses. The US news, which will be released today, will include consumer confidence index and house price index.

Support and resistance

This morning demand for the Pound had grown and the pair went up. However, it looks more like the upward correction. British economy remains weak and there are no grounds for soon recovery. The American currency will continue to rise in price. In the medium-term target level can be at 1.5470. After reaching the bottom limit of the channel, the pair can undergo reversal and go to 1.5630.

Support levels: 1.5485, 1.5470, 1.5425, 1.5350 and 1.5275.

Resistance levels: 1.5550, 1.5600, 1.5630, 1.5700, 1.5735 and 1.5800.

Trading tips

In the current situation it makes sense to trade on trend, opening short positions from the levels of 1.5630 and 1.5700 with take profit at the level of 1.5470.
