  • Will GBPUSD Sustain The Upward Momentum? 0 comments
    Jul 21, 2013 11:54 PM

    After some struggle against the 55-day EMA, GBP/USD ultimately broke that resistance and closed above it. The high of this upward move was 1.5282.

    Isn't it interesting that this high where some resistance was seen was also the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the downward move from 1.5751 to 1.4813? Not only this level brings in the resistance of the 50% retracement but is also slightly below 1.5304 which had proved to be a strong resistance earlier.

    But what if both these resistances are broken?

    If both these resistances are broken then the next level will have the combined forces of the resistance of 61.8% retracement and the 200-day moving average. The current 200-day SMA is at 1.5404 i.e. just 22 pips above the 61.8% retracement level.

    Lets also have a peek into the important economic releases from the U.K. and The U.S. during the last week.

    What can we Expect

    On the upside if there is a decisive break of 1.5304 then we will expect further gains towards 1.5392/1.5404. This zone is expected to be a very strong resistance because of the 61.8% retracement, 200-day moving average and the approaching 1.5500 level. Even if a break of this resistance zone takes place a stronger resistance will be expected near 1.5477.
