GBP/USD - Ready To Break Uptrend Channel
GBP/USD keeps on bouncing on support implied by the lower bound of the uptrend channel. Hourly support is given at 1.4300 (21/04/2016 low) while hourly resistance can be found at 1.4543 (06/05/2016 high). Stronger resistance is located at 1.4770 (03//2016 high). A break of the uptrend channel is necessary to confirm deeper selling pressures.
The long-term technical pattern is negative and favours a further decline towards key support at 1.3503 (23/01/2009 low), as long as prices remain below the resistance at 1.5340/64 (04/11/2015 low see also the 200 day moving average). However, the general oversold conditions and the recent pick-up in buying interest pave the way for a rebound.
