GBP/USD has recovered after German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the door to a solution on the controversial Irish backstop topic that the UK government opposes. Can sterling continue higher?

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that GBP/USD enjoys some support at 1.2141, which is the convergence of the Simple Moving Average 200-15m, the SMA 50-1h, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week, and the SMA 100-15m.

Stronger support awaits at 1.2215, where we note the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week, the SMA 5-1d, and the previous monthly low.

Looking up, only weak resistance awaits at 1.2180, where the Bollinger Band one-day Middle, the BB 15min-Upper, and the previous 4h-high converge.

The next target is 1.2211, where the BB 1h-Upper, the PP 1w-R1, and the PP 1d-R1 meet.

What are the Technical Confluences?

The TCI (Technical Confluences Indicator) is a tool to locate and point out those price levels where there is a congestion of indicators, moving averages, Fibonacci levels, Pivot Points, etc. Knowing where these congestion points are located is very useful for the trader, and can be used as a basis for different strategies.


Confluence of technical levels

This tool assigns a certain amount of “weight” to each indicator, and this “weight” can influence adjacents price levels. This means that one price level without any indicator or moving average but under the influence of two “strongly weighted” levels accumulate more resistance than their neighbours. In these cases, the tool signals resistance in apparently empty areas.

Color code

The tool detects and draws those price levels in which the confluences of indicators and key levels are recorded. Blank lines represent areas where the price can move without technical resistance. The levels with the highest assigned weight of resistance are drawn with the darker colour, this colour being degraded as the influence of the maximum levels decreases.


You can see which indicators are within each price level by placing the cursor on the level. The explanation uses a code that indicates:



With the TCI tool, you can easily locate areas where the price can find a support zone or resistance zone and make trading decisions. If you are a short-term trader, you will find entry points for counter-trend strategies and hunt a few points each time. If you are a medium- and long-term trader, this tool will allow you to know in advance the price levels in which a medium / long-term trend can stop your travel and rest, where to undo positions or where to increase your position.

Bars’ length

The length of the bars of the TCI tool is determined by the weight assigned by the algorithm at each price level. The longest bar in a confluence indicates the level of the price segment where the highest level of confluence of the segment is located. In case of similar levels in the same price range, the maximum length will be assigned to that bar with more accumulated indicators.
