GBP/USD: Technical Analysis and Trading Recommendations_12/13/2021


Last week the GBP / USD pair hit a new 13-month low near 1.3160 mark. Despite the fact that in the last few days the pair managed to grow slightly, bouncing from this local low, it remains in a downtrend, trading in the bear market zone, below the key resistance levels 1.3620 (ЕМА200, ЕМА144 on the daily chart), 1.3400 (ЕМА200 on weekly chart).

Meanwhile, on the 1-hour chart, the price came close to the important short-term resistance level 1.3255 (ЕМА200), while the technical indicators OsMA and Stochastic turned to long positions, signaling an upward correction.

A breakdown of this resistance level and the local resistance level 1.3270 may provoke further strengthening of the GBP / USD with the aim of rising at the resistance level 1.3400.

Further growth is unlikely, given the current monetary policy of the Fed and the Bank of England: downtrend prevails, the main driver of which is the strengthening of the dollar.

The most likely is a rebound from resistance levels 1.3270, 1.3255 and renewed decline in GBP / USD. A breakdown of the local support level 1.3160 ​​will speed up this process.
