GBP/USD: Bullishness in the daily chart pushing the price upside

GBP/USD has been bullish on the daily chart. The price after having a bounce has kept producing bullish candles. Yesterday’s candle came out as a bullish candle, which may attract intraday traders to go long and push the price towards the North further. The H4 chart and the H1 chart seem to be getting ready to attract the buyers.


Chart 1 GBP/USD Daily Chart


We can see on the daily chart that the price has found its support at 1.14000 zone. It produced two bullish engulfing candles. The first one has a long upper shadow, but the second one looks to be a perfect looking bullish reversal candle. The buyers then kept pushing the price towards the upside. Yesterday's candle came out as a long bullish candle, which set a strong upbeat tone in the intraday charts. The daily traders may wait for the price to consolidate and produce a bullish reversal candle to go long in the pair. The price may find its nearest resistance around the 1.27500 level.


Chart 2 GBP/USD H4 Chart


The H4 chart shows that the price produced a double bottom, breached the neckline level, and headed towards the North. The price found its resistance at the level of 1.22335 and created a bearish corrective candle. As of writing, the last candle has been bullish so far. If it comes out as a bullish engulfing candle, the price may head towards the level of 1.24550. In case of a bearish breakout at the consolidation support, the price may get choppy and consolidate within a bigger range.


Chart 3 GBP/USD H1 Chart


The chart shows that the price had a long consolidation and headed towards the level of resistance. One of the candles breached through the level closing above it. The pair is trading above the level now. As of writing, if the last candle comes out as a bullish candle closing above the breakout candle, the buyers may go long on the pair. The price may find its next resistance at the level of 1.22530. If the price comes back within the breakout level, it may consolidate again. The level of 1.21460 may play a vital role in determining its next direction.

The daily is bullish, but the traders may want to wait for a better risk-reward. The H4 and the H1 chart are getting ready to make their next bull run. Considering these three charts, the pair may have another bullish day today.
