GBPUSD prints a falling wedge bullish chart pattern amid all the pessimism surrounding the UK economy and the hawkish Fed, not to forget the US dollar’s run-up. The recovery moves, however, need validation from the 1.1810 hurdle, as well as the 50-SMA resistance surrounding 1.1840. Following that, a three-week-long horizontal resistance near 1.2010 could test the bulls before directing them to the monthly high, currently around 1.2295.
Meanwhile, pullback moves could retest the lower line of the stated falling wedge, close to 1.1640, while refreshing the multi-month low. Following that, the 1.1600 and the 1.1500 round figure may entertain the GBPUSD bears before highlighting the year 2020 bottom close to 1.1410. That said, the cable pair’s south-run past 1.1410 will make it vulnerable to drop towards the 1.1000 psychological magnet.
Overall, GBPUSD bears seem running out of fuel but the recovery needs a strong push to convince buyers.
