22.02.202116:14 Forex Analysis & Reviews: Trading Signal for GBP/USD on February 22 - 23, 2021: Key level 1.4014

Exchange Rates 22.02.2021 analysis

In the European session on Monday, the GBP/USD pair reached the level of 1.4050 not seen in 35 months. Then, on the 1-hour charts we saw that it left a pin bar candlestick, thus showing that buyers cannot maintain the price at this level.

GBP/USD has captured a new buying wave, rebounding after a brief dip to 1.3981. The office of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that all four conditions are met to ease the covid-induced lockdown measures and, therefore, the government can proceed with the first step of reopening the economy as of March 8.

The factor that has supported the bullish sentiment on the British pound and gave it strength above other currencies is that the United Kingdom is the first country to act in terms of the vaccination. Now approximately 25% of the UK population has been vaccinated with the first dose.

On a technical level, GBP/USD has left two pin bar candlesticks above the 7/8 Murray zone, indicating that there is likely to be a correction in the American session to the 1.3916 zone. The 6/8 murray level is now acting as immediate support.

Our recommendation is to wait and sell below the 21 SMA (1.4014) on 1-hour charts with the targets at 1.3916(6/8).
