GBPUSD seems to collapse trading below 1985 levels. will it test parity? EURGBP rejected at 0.9290 but indicators point to higher levels - 0.95 next?
GBPUSD continued its collapse this morning to 1.03 before being lifted by buying. GBPUSD is in uncharted territory i.e., at levels not seen when we have data. However, it touched the 1.382 projection of the Q1 2020 to Q2 2021 bull market. Depending on where GBPUSD ends the day today it could indicate an exhaustive move.
If GBPUSD closes around current levels (around 1.07) or higher it would have formed a Hammer candle (Small body with lower shadow at least 2-3 times as long as the body and no or very short upper shadow) on the daily chart. It would be an indication of a bottom and reversal that can initiate a rebound to around 1.1065 i.e. the 0.382 retracement of the past two months of sell-off.
BUT market is still open and the picture can change.
If GBPUSD at the end of today’s price range – or lower – more down side is like. Parity would be in sight.
Weekly RSI has broken its rising trend and made a new low supporting a continued bearish outlook.
