GBP/USD: correction is possible

FX:GBPUSD   British Pound/U.S. Dollar

Current trend

Last week, the GBP/USD             pair was falling. On Thursday, the GBP was under significant pressure when the results of the Bank of England meeting were released. UK monetary policy remained unchanged; moreover, given continuing concerns over the global economic slowdown, falling commodity prices, weak GDP figures and low inflation in the UK, interest rates will be raised no sooner than the second half of 2016.

At the same time, strengthening of the USD and growing expectations of a US interest rate hike negatively affect the GBP/USD             pair, which, therefore, is likely to continue declining in the medium-term.

Support and resistance

While the price remains below the resistance levels of 1.5455 (EMA200 on the daily chart ), 1.5410 (EMA144), 1.5340 (EMA50 and the upper border of the downward channel on the daily chart ), it tends to decline to 1.5000, 1.4900 (the lower border of the downward channel) and 1.4600 (2015 lows).
Nevertheless, the price is at the lower border of the downward channel on the weekly chart so, given appropriate indicators signals on the 4-hour chart, it may rebound from this level on Monday and grow to 1.5230 (23.6% Fibonacci) during a short-term upward correction.
On the daily, weekly and monthly charts, OsMA and Stochastic indicators recommend short positions and confirm that the price is likely to continue its downward trend in the medium term.
Support levels: 1.5040, 1.5000, 1.4900.
Resistance levels: 1. 5110             , 1.5170, 1.5210, 1.5230.
