GBP/USD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for October 30, 2015



Recently, strong bullish pressure was applied to the resistance level of 1.5800 via the recent bullish swing.

That is why, the resistance level of 1.5800 was temporarily breached. Bulls moved towards 1.5900 where the depicted Head and Shoulders reversal pattern was confirmed.

Later, the support level of 1.5555 got breached by the end of the previous month due to excessive bearish pressure, which originated at 1.5800.

The GBP/USD pair moved towards the support zone of 1.5170-1.5150 where a valid intraday buy entry was offered especially after the evident bullish rejection on October 6.

Conservative traders were advised to wait for a bullish pullback towards the level of 1.5480 for a low-risk sell entry.

This sell position was triggered last week. Remaining T/P level is still seen at 1.5150. However, a daily closure above 1.5350 threatens this bearish scenario and can be considered as an exit signal.

Note that bearish persistence below the level of 1.5330 is needed for a further bearish decline towards the levels of 1.5100 and 1.5050.

Otherwise, further bullish correction towards 1.5400 and 1.5450 should not be excluded. This scenario will be highly expected if the current bullish breakout persists above 1.5350 by the end of the day.

USD/CAD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for October 30, 2015




A bullish breakout above the zone of 1.2770-1.2800 was observed on July 15 (highlighted in pale pink).

The long-term bullish target was projected towards the level of 1.3270 (100% Fibonacci Expansion). However, bulls moved further above the resistance level, which was bypassed on September 23.

A significant bearish rejection was observed around 1.3450 where 141.4% Fibonacci Expansion was roughly located.

Later on October 1, bearish persistence below 1.3270 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) was expressed. This applied enough bearish pressure to expose the next support levels around 1.2910 and 1.2750 where long-term buy entries were suggested.

On Friday, daily closure above 1.3100 was achieved. This enhanced the bullish side of the market.

The price level of 1.3270 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) got exposed shortly after USD/CAD bulls managed to push above the price level of 1.3100.

On Tuesday, a valid sell entry was suggested around the level of 1.3270 (FE100%). It is running in profits now. Target levels are located at 1.3075 and 1.2930.

A bearish breakdown of the recent support level at 1.3075 is mandatory to allow further bearish decline at least towards 1.2930.

Trading recommendations:

Conservative traders should wait for bearish pullbacks towards the recent breakout zone (1.2800-1.2750) for a valid buy entry as the breakout level acts as a strong support.

S/L should be located below the level of 1.2700. T/P levels should be located at 1.2850 and 1.2900.

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for GBP/USD for October 30, 2015


Few months ago, the market was pushed above the weekly key zone around 1.5550 in an attempt to reach the area of 1.5900, which has been providing the GBP/USD pair with significant resistance.

The previous weekly candlestick closure above 1.5500 hindered a further bearish decline enhancing the bullish side of the market towards 1.5670 (previous weekly high) and 1.5780 (61.8% Fibonacci level).

However, recent weekly candlesticks came as bearish engulfing candles, closing below the level of 1.5450 (neckline of the Head and Shoulders pattern).

It supported the bearish side of the market in the long term. An approximate projection target should be located at the level of 1.5050 for a reversal pattern.

In the short term, the nearest demand level is seen around 1.5170 (intraday demand level and the origin of a previous bullish engulfing weekly candlestick) providing the pair with significant bullish rejection two weeks ago.

It is expected to be visited again if persistence below the level of 1.5350 (previous weekly bottom) is maintained on a weekly basis.

On the other hand, consolidation above 1.5350 hinders further bearish movement giving time for a bullish correction, which extended up to the levels of 1.5500 during last week's consolidation.


The previous bearish movement found its way towards the level of 1.5200 (prominent demand level), which prevented further bearish decline.

Instead of it, the evident bullish candlestick took place around 1.5200-1.5170 (resulting in bullish engulfing daily candlesticks) leading to the recent bullish pullback towards 1.5600 (the backside of the depicted uptrend). It applied significant bearish pressure to the GBP/USD pair.

The zone of 1.5500-1.5550 remains a significant supply zone to offer valid sell entries.

On Thursday, it offered one more valid sell entry, which is still running in profits.

Note that the recent supply zone at 1.5350-1.5380 should remain defended by GBP/USD bears, so that the current bearish movement can pursue towards the levels of 1.5150 (previous prominent weekly bottoms) and 1.5000 (weekly demand level).

On the other hand, a daily candlestick closure above the price level of 1.5380 enhances the bullish side of the market exposing price levels around 1.5500 where evident bearish rejection was previously expressed on October 22.

Trading Recommendation:

A low-risk buy entry would be offered around the weekly demand level at 1.5000 if a bearish breakdown of both demand level of 1.5150 occurs quickly. S/L should be placed below 1.4930.
