Technical analysis of GBP/USD for Oct 18, 2019


Technical market overview:

The bulls on GBP/USD pair has broken above the level of 1.2939, which was the first clue that the larger timeframe trend might be reversing, but the reaction from bears was immediate. The bulls made a high at the level of 1.2988 and a Pin Bar candlestick pattern was created, which means the supply is strong at this level and bears are defending the resistance zone. The market conditions are now overbought, so after the Pin Bar, the local pull-back might be in progress. The momentum is still positive, so the pull-back might not be that deep and reach the level of 1.2783 or 1.2705 before the rally resume.
