GBPUSD Long Potential | Forex Analysis
As expected, GBPUSD is also trading lower since yesterday after the price completed a big corrective retracement labeled as wave IV and made a nice sharp turnaround lower from 1.5014. Because of a broken channel support line and a nice impulsive fall, we now think that wave V is underway and more weakness may occur towards 1.3000 region, where bears may slow down (Forex Analysis).
GBPUSD Long-Term Bullish View
Sterling covered the entire 2016 range in one day with the pair rallying into channel resistance before reversing sharply to post its largest daily range in history. The low registered just below the 100% extension extending off the 2014 high at 1.3303- note that this level also converges on a trendline extending off the 2001 & 2009 lows as well as the median-line (blue). Interim resistance stands at 1.3834 (a weekly close below bodes well for continued weakness) with our broader outlook weighted to the downside while below 1.4222/25 where the February low-day close converges on the 2010 low.
GBPUSD End Of Fading | Forex Strategies
Although the 23-month down-trend was pierced to the upside on Thursday, the ‘Brexit’ poll results caused the Pound to plummet today, registering a 10% drop towards the lowest level in 30 years. At this point the question is whether the Sterling will be able to stabilise above the 1.36 major level or it will remain close to the 30-year low. There are some supports that could still limit the losses, but with the turmoil on the markets, the Cable’s behaviour is too unpredictable. Nevertheless, a potential cluster is located around the 1.37 psychological level, formed by the weekly S3 and the 23.60% Fibo, while the overall bottom target is today’s low of 1.3230 (Forex Analysis).

Analysts at TD Securities noted, “We see the odds of a UK recession within the next 12 months as now 60%. We pencil in year-end targets for GBPUSD of 1.20 and 0.50% lows in 10y gilts, and shift the next Fed hike to June 2017, with a 30% chance of a rate cut but only if downside risks materialize, with these forecasts remaining fluid.” The major was slammed to the lowest levels since 1985 at 1.3218 levels earlier today, after the Britons voted for a Brexit at the historical EU referendum held Thursday (Forex Analysis).
