GBPUSD Update, Price to Trade Higher Before Turning Lower

December 23, 2015


The GBP has seen losses over the last 7 trading sessions in the aftermath of the markets’ knee-jerk reaction to the U.S. Fed rate hike last week. The pound continues to trade with a weakening bias against both the dollar and the euro.

The GBPUSD reached my initial target at 1.4890 and also my second target at 1.4813 to reach a low near the 1.4800 area, during yesterday’s session (See my December 14 and December 21 post).

At the time of writing, the GBPUSD is bouncing off the 1.48 level and trading up around 70 pips in a “technical bounce”, even though the U.K. Q3 GDP has been unexpectedly revised lower, which is seen as negative for the GBP.

I still believe that traders should be on alert and seek periods of GBPUSD strength, as an opportunity to resell the pair near the upper end of the longer term downward slopping trend channel, ideally between the 1.50 – 1.51 areas for a 1.4730 (March 2015 Low) target price support area spotted on the weekly chart.
