Technical Analysis of GBP/USD for October 20, 2020

Technical Market Outlook:

The GBP/USD bounced towards the level of 1.3017 but was capped at this level and reversed back down towards the upper channel line after the market had been rejected from the supply zone located between the levels of 1.3059 - 1.3081. This zone will be the key short-term zone for both bulls and bears and only a clear and sustained breakout will show the traders the next direction for Pound. In a case of a bullish scenario, the next target would be 1.3121 and the next target for bears is seen at the level of 1.2868 and 1.2848.
