GBP/USD Analysis

Following the strong trend resumption of recent days after our bounce off the long-term bullish trend line, we had a pull-back towards the end of last week. Although the indications are still bullish, looking at a long-term chart it can be seen that we just cannot get a weekly close above 1.6760, and the resistance at around this level so far is keeping a cap on further bullish development. Despite that, all the higher time frame candlestick analysis and trend tools are showing a bullish situation. This indicates we should keep a bullish bias but be mindful of how hard it is proving to be to break through the 1.6750 area which is also crucial psychologically.

Should the pull-back continue further down we will reach a zone which could provide some good long opportunities before the bullish trend line is reached.

GBPUSD Signal 41414

There are no high-impact news releases due today concerning the GBP. At 1:30pm London time there is a release of US Retail Sales and Core Retail Sales data. Therefore it may be a fairly quiet morning, although this pair has been very active so that activity might carry through.
