Forecast for GBP/USD on October 20, 2020

GBP/USD

The pound gained 27 points on Monday, it increased by 110 points at one point, but the price failed to gain a foothold above the daily balance line. Today, the price has just opened above this line, but you need to consolidate for steady growth, which means to close the day with it.

The Marlin oscillator is growing in the zone of positive values and this gives a slightly stronger signal for further short-term growth. The signal is weakened by the MACD line, which is turning down (blue indicator). If the local growing sentiment wins, then the pound may rise to October's peak at the 1.3082 level.

To win the local growth, the price needs to go beyond the MACD line on the four-hour chart, which the price could not overcome yesterday - the 1.3024 level. The price falling below the signal level of 1.2861 opens the prospect of a significant fall to 1.2674.
