03.05.202115:01 Forex Analysis & Reviews: Trading Signal for GBP/USD for May 03 - 04, 2021: Buy above 1.3830

Exchange Rates 03.05.2021 analysis

In the European pre-market, the GBP / USD pair was trading below the EMA of 200 and below the SMA of 21 according to the 4-hour chart with immediate support at 1.3794, where it coincides with the 2/8 of murray.

The triangle pattern that we pointed out on Friday has fulfilled its objective. After the break, we quickly saw a drop to the 200 EMA and around 1.38.

This week, the GBP / USD pair is expected to trade under some volatility in anticipation of the meeting of the Bank of England and the non-farm payrolls that will be published on Friday in the United States.

The GBP / USD pair from its maximum in the 1.3977 area accelerated its decline during the American session on Friday until it reached the level of 1.3805. This fall was caused by a bounce in the US dollar index and also by the fall of stock prices.

The technical reading of the eagle indicator on 4-hour charts shows that an upward correction could occur at 2/8 of a murray (1.3794), or if the price of GBP / USD, sustains above the 200 EMA (1.3830) , we could buy up to 4/8 of murray around 1.3901.

Recently, the 1.3916 area has acted as strong support and at the same time as strong resistance. In view of the fact that now the GBP / USD pair is located below this level, we expect that there will be a pullback towards this area to be able to sell.

The market sentiment report shows that there are 62.2% of traders who are buying the GBP / USD pair. This is a sign that the pair could continue its downward movement to the 1.37 zone in the short term.
