GBPUSD Rally Hinges on 1.3170

Shares

The GBPUSD is encountering sellers right where we thought it might.

On December 3, I wrote about the potential for a breakout from the range ceiling at 1.2980.

Hours later, the GBPUSD closed above 1.2980 and went on a 180 pip run.

But the range break was nothing new to frequent readers of this site.

I discussed the potential for another bullish advance from the British pound on November 18.

The short-term uptrend since September and sideways price action between mid-October and early December suggested strength.

So what needs to happen now?

If you watched my December 3 GBPUSD video, you know that 1.3170 was the target following the close above 1.2980.

You can see how the pair has stalled out a bit around this area.

With that in mind, it’s going to take a daily close above 1.3170 to extend the rally.

Keep in mind that I use New York close charts so that each 24-hour session opens and closes at 5 pm EST.

A daily close above 1.3170 could take the GBPUSD to 1.3340.

But don’t be surprised if we see a rotation lower before the next leg higher can materialize.

That would be the healthier option for this rally, in my opinion.

Regardless of where we go this week, though, I continue to favor GBPUSD longs while the pair is carving higher lows and higher highs.

Justin, your trade set-up for the GBP/USD pair prior to the outcome of the UK election results was wonderful. Initially, I found it difficult to believe the pair could move upwards as far as 3340, but surprisingly, it moved up to 1.3515 after the results were released. I really made some nice pips from your trade set-up. Thanks, once again.
