Trading Signal for GBP/USD for August 31, 2021: Sell Below 1.3795 (EMA 200)

analytics612e33d881543.jpg

The British pound is trading at 1.3781 with an uptrend that is limited below the 200 EMA and below the 2/8 murray. This level is strong resistance and the GBP / USD pair could make a correction as long as it remains below this level.

The weakness of the dollar index #USDX, caused by the moderate stance of the US central bank on Friday, encourages the GBP / USD pair to continue its rise.

UK COVID-19 cases remain high. Daily infection rates are still around 31,000 people, and it could be a factor against the British pound strengthening and could weaken consumer confidence in the Kingdom.

The critical level of 1.3795 will be the key. With a definitive break and consolidation above this level, the GBP / USD pair could continue its bullish movements until 1.3855 level of 3/8 and quickly reach 4/8 of murray at 1.3916.

On the other hand, if the GBP / USD pair fails to consolidate above 1.3793, the downward pressure that is going on below the 200 EMA and the 2/8 murray line could push the pair down, and this it could a fall to the support of the 21 SMA located at 1.3740.

The key support is located at 1.3732. This level will be the key as a technical rebound could occur and give a new upward impetus to the GBP / USD pair. Besides, it could be a good point to buy with the target seen at 1.3855.

Following a final consolidation below 1.3730, the British pound could enter a bearish phase and could accelerate its decline to the critical support of -1/8 murray around 1.3610.

In view of the fact that the pair maintains an uptrend in 4-hour charts, it would be prudent to expect the pound sterling to trade in a support zone to buy the pair again. The eagle indicator is showing a bullish signal.
