GBP USD Technical Forex Analysis for Forex Traders
Rate tests support in NY at 1.3950 area; shorts are gaining confidence for a break under 1.4000. Rally to clear close in stops above 1.4300 and a close over the handle suggest more upside and a short-squeeze; today’s break to lows likely put’s that scenario on hold.
Two-way action between existing S/R the past 72 hours likely to continue. Stops likely building on both sides increasing the chance for whipsaw. Traders report stops in-range adding for two-way action.
Long-term tech resistance now at 1.5000 area likely to cap near term but stops are building above and the 1.5000 handle is a big psychological number. 23 year lows are very likely to hold on any break with initial support now at 1.3900 in play.
Two-way action continues suggesting that shorts are aggressively adding and longs are trying to find a bottom.
