Top trade idea for November 30th, 2015 – GBP/USD
By Vladislav Antonov on Nov 30, 2015 01:39:51 GMT
Trading opportunities for currency pair: the monthly candle has closed the previous two months and will be closing down. The target is 1.4560. Due to the general strengthening of USD and according to the cycle, the pound/dollar’s fall could last until the beginning of March 2016. Since the scenario is a weekly one, it could become invalid if the weekly candle closes above 1.5340.
As things are at the moment:
The pound/dollar closed at 1.5030 against 1.5046. The pound strengthened to 1.5335 as part of an upward correction and then returned to where it was. The support remained unbroken with the weekly indicators showing a further fall for the GBP.
After the broken trend line (dotted line), the pound couldn’t manage to win back its losses. The price returned to the support. All of the indicators (CCI, AC, and AO) are showing a further fall for the pound sterling. Just as before, I’m still waiting for the support to be broken. The first target is 1.4950 and after that the road to 1.4565 will open up.
We can expect a sharp fall of the GBP/USD if there is an upward inversion of the euro/pound cross. Don’t expect this inversion to come before 3rd December (ECB meeting).
The price already takes account for a further relaxation of monetary policy. If the ECB disappoints the market, the euro/pound will flip downside up. After the ECB has convened, traders will be focussing their attention on Friday’s US labour market report and the FOMC meeting. Here I think we’ll see a double bottom. This pattern could be realized even if the ECB relaxed its monetary policy further.
The monthly candle will close on Tuesday. I’ve put this graph in the review to show you the full picture for the GBP/USD. It’s unlikely that anything will change over the course of Monday. For now, November has closed two previous candles and this is a bear signal.
If we put a line through the 1.7042 and 2.7189 maximums and then attach a parallel line to the 1.4227 minimum, we get a support at 1.4430. I took the target from April 2015’s minimum.
