Trading Signal for GBP/USD for February 15 - 16, 2021: Overbought


The GBP/USD pair, on Friday of last week, managed to close above 1.3850, opening the doors for a bullish move to the +2 / 8 Murray level around 1.3916, this bullish momentum is due to growing optimism from the UK leadership, in terms of the coronavirus vaccination campaign and could ease lockdown restrictions.

At this moment before the opening of the European session, it is trading near the +2/8 Murray level, which represents an extreme overbought. A correction could occur in the next few hours as the eagle indicator is showing a signal of overbought.

The GBP/USD pair is trading above the SMA of 21 on 4-hour charts with the key level of 1.3855 because below this moving average, a correction could occur.

We can notice an uptrend channel on 4-hour charts, if it is broken it could add strength to the bearish movement.

The first support is found at 1.3793, this level if broken could continue the correction to the level of the 200 EMA around 1.3671.

Given the British pound is overbought, we recommend selling below the level of +2/8 murray with targets 1.3855 and 1.3796.
