The GBPUSD traded for a while in an undefined range, very difficult to trade by the way, but earlier today, during the European session it broke the bottom of that range. Please take a look at the next chart.
Now, it will probably head to the next mayor support level around 1.6029.
Here is my trading plan:
I will look for short trading opportunities, will place my take profit level above the next long term support level around 1.6029.
The GBPUSD is trading just at an important long term resistance level around 1.6986. The thing is, the market is creating a short term range in between 1.6907 and 1.6988. Please take a look at the next chart:
We need to see a break of the short term range before we start looking for trading opportunities. Seeing the EURUSD already broke the top of the range, my bias would be long in the GBPUSD, but we can’t take decisions based on other currency pairs, we need to wait.
My trading plan:
If the market breaks the short term resistance level, I will start looking for long trading opportunities, the next long term resistance level is at 1.7477.
If the market breaks the short term support level, I will start looking for short trading opportunities, the next support level is at 1.6552.
