GBP/USD Reaches Resistance Within Daily Channel

Good morning traders,

We’ve been watching this GBP/USD channel as price moves up between horizontal support/resistance zones.

How price behaves around this horizontal resistance level will be key as to whether we reach the upper band of the channel, or whether we just head back down again. Either way, this is the level that traders can manage their risk around.

Now zoom into an intraday chart and take a look at the hourly below.

These are the sorts of short term support turned resistance (and vice versa) that we want to look for. Especially on the short side if the above daily level does in fact hold.

Watch this space.

Best of probabilities to you!
