GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Retreats from 4-1/2 month tops amid slightly overbought conditions

26.02.2019

   •  The pair continued gaining strong positive traction the mid-European session on Tuesday and climbed further beyond the 1.3200 handle, hitting the highest level since mid-October.    •  Hope for either a Brexit extension or that the UK PM May might rule out a no-deal Brexit outcome turned out to be one of the key factors fueling the ongoing strong positive momentum.     •  Meanwhile, a sustained move beyond the 1.3100 handle was seen as a key trigger for intraday bullish traders and behind a strong 140-pips intraday up-move to levels beyond the 1.3200 mark.    •  However, slightly overstretched technical indicators on hourly charts kept a lid on any strong follow-through ahead of the UK PM Theresa May’s statement in the parliament later today.    •  Any positive headlines might be enough to provide an additional boost and easily lift the pair further beyond the 1.3250-60 intermediate hurdle towards reclaiming the 1.3300 handle.
