Technical Analysis of GBP/USD for 20/04/2020:

Technical Market Outlook:

After falling out of the parallel channel, the GBP/USD pair has made a local low at the level of 1.2416 and has been consolidating in a narrow range during all the weekend. The larger time frame trend remains up, but in the short-term the bears are in control of the market and the next target for them is located at the level of 1.2406 and below at 1.2369 (61% Fibonacci retracement of the last wave up). Please notice, that the level of 1.2406 had been providing support for some time now, so any violation of this level will lead to a deeper sell-off towards 1.2369 and even 1.2165.

Trading Recommendations:

The fear of the coronavirus consequences is very strong among the global investors and it rules on the financial markets. On the GBP/USD pair the main trend is down, but the reversal is possible when the coronavirus pandemic will be tamed. The key long-term technical support has been recently violated (1.1983) and the new one is seen at the level of 1.1404. The key long-term technical resistance is seen at the level of 1.3518. Only if one of this levels is clearly violated, the main trend might reverse (1.3518) or accelerate (1.1404).
