GBP/USD: technical analysis 12.12.19

Current trend

GBP/USD is in the stage of a downward correction after growing to the level of 1.32284, but the upward trend is still maintained. If the "bulls" manage to raise the rate above the level of 1.32300, the growth can continue to the area of 1.32446. This level can prevent the instrument from growing, as the possibility of the reverse of the price is high there. Meanwhile, the breakout and pair’s sustained trading above 1.32446 may push GBP/USD towards a 9-month high 1.32700-1.33057 resistance area.

Alternative scenario

The pullback below 1.32141 will be a signal for a downward correction formation and give a prospect of decline to 1.31836 level. This level seems a strong support zone. There is a chance of an upward rebound, while its breakdown would allow the fall to continue to 1.31600 level, which corresponds to the middle line of Bollinger Bands. The breakdown of this level could trigger a pair’s decline to 1.31226 support.

Technical indicators

Technical indicators maintain a buy signal.
