GBPUSD – Market Analysis

It is always useful to keep in mind the big picture. In the monthly chart you can see how GBPUSD has been moving in a trading range since 2009. Now the price is in the middle of this trading range starting the move from the low limit.

In the previous GBPUSD analysis I stated that the price was coming to long term support level and it is possible that the price starts to move up. Later Analitical Trader detected strong signal (Minor Demand) and the price turned its direction. In this chart you can see key levels in GBPUSD. Resistance and support levels are very important in trading, because by analyzing the price behavior near these levels we can predict further movement. Look how the price notices the levels. Analitical Trader detects strong or weak signals when the price comes near the resistance or support levels and helps us to understand the next move. At the moment the price is near the long term support level and again there is a strong signal in the chart. So it is possible that the price will change direction once again. Look carefully for weak signals.

GBPUSD and EURUSD Intraday Analysis




In GBP/USD there were multiple demand signals near the lower part of the channel, but since their lows weren’t sustained for much longer, this wasn’t accumulation, but rather take-profits on short positions. My trade ideas in H1/H4 are either to wait for prices to get near the support at 1.508, or if prices sustain the most recent lows, I can start thinking of the most recent demand signals (with a very high volume red histogram bar) as accumulation, which could change the trend. A selling climax, a wide-range candle making lower lows with extremely high volume, and which Analytical would mark as Major Demand, could also mark the end of this trend.



EUR/USD on the other hand, already paused the downtrend ahead of the Pound, and more demand signals above the support at 1.081 would be a sign of accumulation (= long-term trend change). This could be bullish for GU as these usually go hand in hand.

In the most recent EUR/USD rally there was a short opportunity, at Thursday, as the background was weak and there were many weak signals, which made a significant downtrend very likely. Looking back, the major trend was still down, despite the pause at 1.08, and there was another important factor going on: the volumes of the most recent demand signals were surpassed the volumes of the most recent weak signals, which was an indication the rally was about to fail. The close was on a strong signal after the Dynamic Trend had already changed to up.
