GBP/USD eyes 1.2724, assuming no new drama


GBP/USD is getting more comfortable on higher ground as the drama around Brexit is not as intense as it used to be.

The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that cable faces initial resistance at around 1.2652 which is the convergence of yesterday’s high, the Pivot Point one-day Resistance 1, and the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week.

If that level is overcome, the next level to watch is already significant resistance. At 1.2724 we find a cluster of potent caps. It includes the PP one-day R3, the Bollinger Band one-day Middle, and last month’s low.

Looking down, support awaits at 1.2606 where we see the confluence of the Fibonacci 61.8%, the Simple Moving Average 10-4h, the SMA 5-one-day, and the SMA 100-1h.

The next support line is 1.2528 where we see the Fibonacci 161.8% one-day, the BB one-day Lower, the PP one-day S2, and the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week.

This is how it looks on the tool:

Confluence Detector

The Confluence Detector finds exciting opportunities using Technical Confluences. The TC is a tool to locate and point out those price levels where there is a congestion of indicators, moving averages, Fibonacci levels, Pivot Points, etc. Knowing where these congestion points are located is very useful for the trader, and can be used as a basis for different strategies.

This tool assigns a certain amount of “weight” to each indicator, and this “weight” can influence adjacents price levels. This means that one price level without any indicator or moving average but under the influence of two “strongly weighted” levels accumulate more resistance than their neighbors. In these cases, the tool signals resistance in apparently empty areas.
