MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Possibility of market strengthening is seen above the immediate resistive barrier at 1.3806 (R1). Price extension above it is required to validate our next intraday targets at 1.3832 (R2) and 1.3860 (R3). Downwards scenario: While instrument trades above the moving averages, our short-term bias would stay positive though penetration below the support level at 1.3757 (S1) might open way towards to lower targets at 1.3728 (S2) and 1.3706 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.3806, 1.3832, 1.3860
Support Levels: 1.3757, 1.3728, 1.3706

GBPUSD :
HIGH 1.638 LOW 1.63533 BID 1.63654 ASK 1.63659 CHANGE 0% TIME 08 : 38:32

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: Market descended, however price appreciation might be possible above the next resistance level at 1.6398 (R1). Break here is required to enable next attractive points at 1.6428 (R2) and 1.6465 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next support level is seen at 1.6346 (S1), any penetration below it might activate downside pressure and enable lower target at 1.6319 (S2). Any further market decline would then be limited to 1.6290 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.6398, 1.6428, 1.6465
Support Levels: 1.6346, 1.6319, 1.6290

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: Any upside actions looks limited to resistance level at 102.93 (R1). Surpassing of this level might enable next target at 103.15 (R2) and any further gains would then be targeting final mark at 103.38 (R3) in potential. Downwards scenario: On the downside our attention is shifted to the immediate support level at 102.30 (S1). Break here is required to enable bearish forces and expose our intraday targets at 102.10 (S2) and 101.92 (S3).

Support Levels: 102.30, 102.10, 101.92
