Chart analysis


The GBPUSD technical analysis of the price chart on a 1-hour timeframe shows GBPUSD: H1 is rebounding to test the 200-period moving average MA(200) which is declining. We believe the bullish momentum will continue after the price breaches above the upper bound of the Donchian channel at 1.4154. A level above this can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to buy. The stop loss can be placed below 1.4072. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved to the next fractal low, following Parabolic indicator signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level without reaching the order, we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.
