GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Mission Accomplished as Cable bulls reach 1.3200 figure - Is it time to sell ?

  • GBP/USD is in a bull trend as the market is above the 50, 100 and 200-period simple moving average.
  • After breaking from the bull flag, GBP/USD reached the 1.3200 figure. GBP/USD is facing resistance at the 1.3200 level while the Stochastic indicator is in overbought condition. While the bias remains bullish the market might need to correct to 1.3150 (September 21 low) or  even to 1.3100 figure before potentially resuming the bull trend. 
  • A bear breakout below 1.2957 would likely invalidate the bullish bias.
