GBP/USD Technical Analysis

The British Pound formed a base above the 1.1000 against the US Dollar. GBP/USD started a recovery wave and was able to climb above the 1.1200 resistance.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair settled above the 1.1250 level, the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours), and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).

The bulls attempted to clear the 1.1400 resistance zone, but struggled. A high was formed near 1.1406 and the pair is now consolidating gains. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the 1.1380 zone. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near 1.1380 on the same chart.

The next major resistance on the upside may perhaps be near 1.1400. Any more gains could set the pace for a move towards the 1.1500 level. If there is a downside correction, the pair might test the 1.1200 support.

The next major support is near the 1.1140 level. A downside break below the 1.1140 support and the triangle lower trend line may perhaps send GBP/USD towards the 1.1050 support. Any more losses could lead the pair towards 1.1000.

Looking at bitcoin price, the bulls are still struggling to clear the $19,500 and $19,650 resistance levels, above which the price could accelerate higher.
