Technical Analysis of GBP/USD for 04/05/2020:

Technical Market Outlook:

The GBP/USD pair has been rejected at the previous high at the level of 1.2645 and it is possible, that a Double Top pattern was made at the end of the move. Since then the bears have managed to push the prices towards the level of 50% Fibonacci retracement located at 1.2443. Any violation of this level will open the road towards the next target for bears seen at 61% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2397. There is a short-term ascending trend line close to this level, so it might get tough for bears to violate it in one go. Please notice, the market is coming off the overbought levels and the momentum indicator is neutral, but when it turn south, then the sell-off might accelerate towards 1.2246 level.
