GBP / USD Technical Analysis Oct 27

Can the buyers retrace the GBPUSD higher at 1.2208?

The GBPUSD has been mostly oscillating, since the 25th of October 2016, between the range of 1.2095 and 1.2235 respectively.

Both the buyers and the sellers are now placing strong pressures in their attempts of taking control over the pair’s price.

The price is now oscillating above the 1.2208 zone which is today’s major pivot point area.

Probable Scenario

In the condition where the pair stabilizes above the 1.2208 area, the price could rise to higher zones such as the 1.2335.

The Stochastic oscillator also confirms that the price has greater chances to retrace and rise at the 35 level.
