Indicator analysis. Daily review of GBP/USD on April 1, 2020

The pair moved downward on Tuesday and tested a pullback level of 23.6% - 1.2258 (blue dotted line), and after that, the price went up. Today, there is a possibility that the pullback downward movement will continue until the news at 12:15 UTC. Strong calendar news for the pound is expected at 06:30 UTC, and for the dollar at 12:15, 14:00 and 14:30 UTC.

Trend analysis (Fig. 1).

Today, from the level of 1.2423 (closing of the Friday afternoon candle) the pair will continue to move downward with the first target of 1.2258, a retracement level of 23.6% (blue dashed line). I think that no matter where the price is during the 12:15 UTC news, only the upward movement is possible. Or, upon reaching this line, the upward movement will be possible with the target of 1.2518, a retracement level of 61.8% (blue dashed line). From this level, the upward movement will continue.
