To understand exactly where we want to go, before looking at this chart (H4), you must know our weekly analysis (published also below).
GBPUSD: Weekly Outlook

Looking H4, we could have completed the first leg (pullback) and after a possible rebound, we see in training the second leg of a pullback with "abcd" model.
It will be very interesting as the cable open today ...

WEEKLY MARKET MOVER: 7 May - Election Day
Trading Room:
I agree, cable's looking potentially very bullish.
EURGBP: Decisive moment

GBPUSD: Is the Pound a buy? I suspect so.

GBPNZD: the beginning of a longterm uptrend

we try to publish charts of relevance, otherwise it is too much confusion, Thanks

What about that massive weekly pin bar? Let's remind ourselves of the characteristics of this, the most powerful of all price action set ups.

Wick must be 3 times as big as the body
Wick must be larger than the previous bars and stick out from the rest
Body must be on one end of the wick, not in the middle
Price has to close within the previous candles high or low
The Smaller the body the better, the bigger the wick the better

In the circumstances I can't see how the cable can be looking very bullish. Indeed with the uncertainty of the election I would say bearish.
it's only a pin bar... whatelse? :) ...simple pin bar....

Agreed, judging a pair by ONE candle's shape -which is subjective since the open and close of FX (a 24hs market) is dependent on the broker's price feed- is a bad idea imho.
@pezq @signalsuisse Gents, you both could be right but different timing. I think GBPUSD has room for further downside till 1.5020 and then next leg up.

@pezq the answer perhaps is not in cable, but the greenback

yes of course, always consider the areas and levels not pure... :)

It looks a lot like the crude oil chart...greenback strength = usoil.
I think GBP is looking stronger than EUR right now, even if gbpusd falls, there are interesting GBP longs to consider. (short eurgbp, long gbpcad, long gbpnzd, long gbpaud, etc)
May be its just a pinbar but I wait at least 100 pips profit for sell.
nobody says otherwise

Am I the only crazy one over here who thinks it might fall lower than this? I think we have to hit the lower band of the channel once more before going up.
absolutely, in the medium term it is very likely :)

Well, I for one think that cable will fall to lower levels. First of all DXY is reversing upwards and secondly, whatever the result of the uk election the short term results cant be good for cable. As for the simple pin bar - which stands for Pinocchio - whose characteristics was a long nose due to lying - it is a tried and tested trading signal. At the end of the day this is about trading. Its not about being right. I am happy to stand by my steadily increasing equity.

Just for interest I went through the recent weekly chart of GBPUSD to see which pin bars would have been profitable. I think the picture speaks for itself.
caution..... more different location........ more different pin...... only my opinion...
