GBP/USD Analysis

The pair may move strongly today as there are important events scheduled for both GBP (Manufacturing PMI is released at 9:30am London time) and USD (Bernanke is speaking at 1:30pm London time).

The pair has been in a strong uptrend since early November, dramatically breaking through the key 1.6250 resistance level last week, and making a new 2 year high last Friday, as shown in the 4 hour chart below, marked with key S/R levels and a bullish trend line.

GBPUSD H4 12213

The chart above shows key S/R levels and a bullish trend line.

Although early action this morning has shown a “falling off” from the new high with inside bars, the strong bullish trend and the confluent level at 1.6325 of resistance turned into support and the GMT S1 pivot suggest a long trade off a pull back to this level.
