GBP/USD Wrestle Back Control & Aim For 1.40 Target

The GBP/USD broke below the rising wedge… but price action failed to reverse. 

Instead, price action bounced at the long-term moving average and support zone (blue box) again. 

The bulls are back in control (as mentioned in the EU-GU video) and looking for a bullish breakout now.

The GBP/USD quickly tested the 21 ema zone and bounced back upwards (green circle). Price is now testing a key decision zone, which are the resistance trend lines (orange).

  • A bearish bounce (orange arrow) could indicate a fall back towards the 21 ema zone.
  • A bullish bounce (green arrow) is expected at the 21 ema zone.
  • A breakout (blue arrow) is expected either immediately or after the pullback.
  • The 1st target is Wizz7 level at 1.3860.
  • A bull flag pattern (grey arrows) could confirm another push up (blue arrow).
  • The 2nd target is Wizz8 at 1.40.
  • Only a strong reversal impulse (red arrow) ends the uptrend.

The bullish price action is part of a wave 5 (red) after price action completed an ABC (purple) within wave 4 (red).

On the 1 hour chart, price action has reached the -27.2% Fibonacci target after bouncing at the 38.2% Fib and 144 ema close (green box).

  • A bullish breakout (green arrow) is aiming for the -61.8% Fibonacci target. 
  • A bearish bounce (orange arrow) should see support at the previous top (blue arrow).
  • A bull flag (grey arrows) could indicate a continuation of the uptrend.

All of the Fibonacci levels are expected to act as support (green circles), in case the price does retrace lower. Only a deeper retracement places it on hold (yellow & red).
