Exchange Rates 20.01.2022 analysis

Overview :

The GBP/USD pair broke resistance which turned to strong support at the level of 1.3572 yesterday. The level of 1.3572 coincides with a double bottom, which is expected to act as major support today. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is considered overbought because it is above 70. The RSI is still signaling that the trend is upward as it is still strong above the moving average (100). This suggests the pair will probably go up in coming hours. Accordingly, the market is likely to show signs of a bullish trend. The level of 1.3748 will act as strong resistance and the double top is already set at the point of 1.3748. In other words, buy orders are recommended above 1.3572 with the first target at the level of 1.3748 (the double top). From this point, the pair is likely to begin an ascending movement to the point of 1.3748 and further to the level of 1.3790. On the other hand, if a breakout happens at the support level of 1.3536, then this scenario may become invalidated.

Forecast :

According to the previous events, the GBP/USD pair is still moving between the levels of 1.3572 and 1.3748; for that we expect a range of 176 pips (1.3748 - 1.3572).

If the GBP/USD pair fails to break through the resistance level of 1.3748, the market will decline further to 1.3536. This would suggest a bearish market because the RSI indicator is still in a positive area and does not show any trend-reversal signs. The pair is expected to drop lower towards at least 1.3492 with a view to test the last bearish wave.
