The GBPUSD erased momentarily all the loses since the begining of the year when it came close to the 1.4800 level, but then it goes back down very fast after the UK manufacturing came out worse than expected. For now the pair may continue dropping towards the 1.4500 zone.
The pair bounced off the support at 1.4470, which is EMA89 on the four-hour time frame, but I don't think this is the end to the move to the downside. In my opinion GBP/USD would test the support one more time at least, and if it breaks below it it will continue falling towards 1.4400.
The pair is moving between the support at 1.4400 and and the resistance at 1.4470, we'll have to see which one of these levels it will break below or above for range to end. Right now it's a little unclear what direction the pair will take.
The GBPUSD had a bullish momentum yesterday topped at 1.4414 and hit 1.4493 earlier today. The bias is bullish in nearest term testing 1.4530 region. Immediate support is seen around 1.4450 area. A clear break below that area could lead price to neutral zone in nearest term testing 1.4400 which need to be clearly broken to the downside to keep the false break bearish scenario remains strong. On the upside, a clear break and daily close above 1.4530 could trigger further bullish pressure retesting the daily EMA 200 this week.
GBP/USD reached 1.4660 but not only bounced off that resistance level, it also formed a doji candlestick below it on the daily time frame. I think that there will be a new move to the downside towards 1.4500.
The GBPUSD was indecisive yesterday. The bias is neutral in nearest term probably with a little bearish bias testing 1.4500 area. On the upside, key resistance remains around the daily EMA 200 located around 1.4700 region. A clear break and daily/weekly close above that area would activate my bullish mode targeting 1.5000 next week.
The pair reached 1.4740, bounced off that resistance and formed a shooting star on the 4-hour time frame. I think we will see a retracement to 1.4600 again, but I don't think that's the end of the move to the upside.
