Senior channel of linear regression: direction - down.

On July 18, most of the trading day, the GBP / USD currency pair continued strong downward movement and only in the second half of the day began a weak upward correction. This correction may end already at the European trading session, and the downtrend - to resume. The younger linear regression channel has already turned down, so now all the trend indicators indicate a downward trend. Today, the main hope of the pound sterling for recovery will be related to the publication of reports on retail sales in the UK for June. Forecasts predict a slowdown in the growth rate of this indicator to 0.4% in monthly terms. If the annual indicator also decreases, this will be a new basis for traders for new purchases of the American currency. From America today, no macroeconomic reports are expected, except for a small number of applications for unemployment benefits.

For a pair of GBP / USD, the correction may end. This can signal the formation of 1-2 bars of blue color indicator Heikin Ashi. In this case, it is recommended to open new shorts with targets of 1,300 and 1,2939.
Long will become relevant only not before the traders overcome the moving average line with a target of 1.3306. However, the price is still far enough from the removals, so there is very little chance of overcoming it today.
In addition to the technical picture, one should also take into account the fundamental data and the time of their release.
