GBP/USD Price Analysis: On the front foot towards 1.3115/20 resistance confluence

  • GBP/USD registers a five-day winning streak.
  • A confluence of 50% Fibonacci retracement and the descending trend line from December 31, 2019, becomes the key.
  • 50 and 100-day SMAs can offer immediate supports during the pullback.

Despite slipping back from the intra-day high of 1.3105, GBP/USD stays positive while taking rounds to 1.3095 during the Asian session on Monday.

Not only its ability to cross a downward sloping trend line since December 12, 2019, but a sustained run-up beyond 50 and 100-day SMAs also portrays the underlying strength in momentum.

That said, GBP/USD prices are now rising towards a confluence of 50% Fibonacci retracement of its declines from December 2019 to February 2020 as well as a falling trend line from December 31, 2019, around 1.3115/20.

Should the bulls manage to keep the reins past-1.3120, January-end high close to 1.3210 as well as 61.8% Fibonacci retracement near 1.3215 will be important to watch.

On the contrary, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement near 1.3030 can act as the closest support in a case of the pair’s pullback.

Though 50-day and 100-day SMAs, respectively near 1.3010 and 1.2995, can question the pair’s further declines below 1.3030, if not then the broader support line around 1.2985 will be on the bears’ radars.
