GBP/USD: bears are pulling down

GBP/USD: bears are pulling down

2019-11-11 • Updated

On the daily chart bears managed to lead the quotes out of the descending channel. This increases the risks of triggering "Bat" pattern with a target at 88.6%. The necessary condition of this scenario is the successful test of support at 1.2370. On the other hand, the pound's return above resistance at $1.2495 will increase the risks of uptrend resumption.

On H1, patterns "Bat' and AB=CD allow determining potential of the downward movement. Their targets are close to 1.2305 and 1.2160. The break of support at 1.2420 will increase the risks of a decline.

Recommendation: SELL 1,242 SL 1,2475 TP 1,2305.
