GBPUSD W1(Weekly) Chart Analysis – Key Resistance Zone, Bearish Divergence, Stochastic Oscillator
On the weekly chart, we have a key resistance zone that has formed by the 161.8% (1.41102) Fibonacci expansion level of the first wave, the 100%(1.40511) Fibonacci expansion level of the second wave, and the psychological level 1.40. The price which is moving higher has currently reached this key resistance zone. In addition to this, we have a bearish divergence that has formed between the first high that has formed on 30th August 2020 and the second high that has formed on 21st February 2021 based on the MACD indicator which we may consider as evidence of bearish pressure. Also based on the Stochastic Oscillator, we could see that the price has reached its extreme, we may consider this as yet another evidence of bearish pressure. We may now move down to lower timeframe and see if we can find evidences supporting this bearish view.
GBPUSD H4(4 Hours) Chart Analysis – Bearish Trend Pattern, Stochastic Oscillator, Strong Resistance Zone
On the H4 chart, we could see that the price which is moving lower has created a bearish trend pattern in the form of three lower highs, lower lows we may consider this as evidence of bearish pressure. Generally, after a bearish trend pattern, we may expect corrections and then further continuation lower. Currently, it looks like a correction is happening. In addition to this based on the Stochastic Oscillator, we could see that the price has reached its extreme here as well, we may consider this as yet another evidence of bearish pressure. So everything looks good here for the bears and until this strong resistance zone (marked in blue) shown in the image below holds my view remains bearish here and I expect the price to continue lower further.
