Technical analysis of GBP/USD for December 19, 2017

The British pound against the Dollar is at a very critical junction. Price is still below the long-term resistance trend line but holding above the crucial 1.30-1.31 support. The GBP/USD is mainly moving sideways with no clear trend, but short-term view makes me favor the bearish side.


Red line - resistance

Blue line - support

The GBP/USD pair is making lower highs and has tested the support at 1.33 so far 3 times. If there is a fourth time, I expect support at 1.33 to be broken and price move at least towards 1.32. Resistance at the red trend line is already hit three times. Breaking above it will push price towards 1.35 which is the long-term resistance.


The GBP/USD so far respects both the upward sloping trend line from 2016 and the long-term downward sloping trend line from 2014. Breaking above 1.35 will open the way for a move towards 1.40. Break below 1.32-1.30 and we could see a sell off towards 1.20.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company -
