FX Times: Daily Technical Update GBP/USD Monitoring for Exit Signal
11:30 AM EST
December 7th, 2009
GBP/USD Showing Signs of Support
- 4H and 1H: The GBP/USD has followed our anticipated decline in the short-term. (Refer to Daily Technical Update 12.03.09 GBP/USD).
It has yet to reach our target at 1.6270. Instead the decline paused at
1.6315. It is very likely the pair has completed itâ€™s bearish cycle,
and is now ahead of a bullish cycle. The bullish divergence in both
time-frames suggest at least a short-term bullish correction.
- The 9AM-10AM candle in the 1H time-frame was an early exit trigger.
Since the market is in overall ranging mode, earlier exits make sense
rather then waiting for a confirmation.
- The confirmation will come from the rest of the US session, by
whether the market will rally above 1.6430-1.6450 area, or continue a
decline from this short-term resistance. This resistance, the parabolic
SAR, and the declining trendline are all confirmations to exit.
- The next resistance is the 1.6550 area. If this holds, our bearish outlook is still viable.
- Re-consideration of bearish outlook should be in the 15-min time-frame for intra-session plans.
- However a break above 1.6450 signals a reversal back to the 1.6700
area. The 1.6400 re-establishing as support is confirmation for the
