GBP / USD Technical Analysis Oct 25

Is the 1.2136 sellers’ opportunity on the GBPUSD?

The GBPUSD has been mostly oscillating, since the 19th of October 2016, within a bearish formation between the range of 1.2328 and 1.2210 respectively.

Both the buyers and the sellers are now placing strong pressures in their attempts of taking control over the pair’s price.

The price is now oscillating above the 1.2136 zone which is today’s major pivot point area.

Probable Scenario

In the condition where the pair stabilizes below the 1.2136 area, the price could be forced to decline to lower zones such as the 1.2013 level.

The Stochastic oscillator also confirms that the price has greater chances to retrace and decline at the 70 level.


Alternative Scenario

Alternatively, should the buyers take the lead and boost the price above the 1.2210 area Fibonacci’s 61.8% the pair could appreciate as high as 1.2328.
