GBP/USD: levels to trade
Information is not investment advice
GBP/USD regained some ground on the weakness of the USD and the optimism about Brexit. The pair made a big leap up yesterday and broke 200-day MA (1.30). However, the pair had already tested levels above this line not long ago but ultimately returned lower. Daily MAs are below the price and almost horizontal. In the short term, the pound will likely correct back to 1.30.
A break below 1.30 may provoke a slide to 1.2940/00. Still, for now, support looks stronger, so we see that it’s possible to bet on another attempt to test the 50-week MA at 1.3165.
NZD/CAD has reached a 200-week MA (0.8950) and formed a “shooting star” candlestick on the D1. On the H4, we see a lower high.
XAU/USD has moved this week in line with its short-term uptrend and the overall long-term uptrend reaching $1 865.
