GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Another Leg Higher Looking Likely


Cable ran off the May lows in conjunction with a reversal in risk trends, as the dollar sank and stocks ripped. While correlations have cooled since the low, it still exists and as long as stocks look headed higher and the dollar lower, then GBP/USD should maintain a bid.

Yesterday, cable tried to fall out of a short-term range, but then in strong fashion rebounded to close the sessions near the highs. This has it set up to run higher soon as long as yesterday’s low at 12430 holds up.

Looking higher, just ahead lies a trend-line from February that could keep price contained on an immediate test, but it isn’t expected to hold cable down for long. The first meaningful level we will need to see crossed clocks in at 12667/75. This is the recent peak just under a swing-low created in September 2020.

If risk is to continue higher as anticipated in the near-term, then this level is likely to break, however; it could act as a cap if the general dollar down/stocks up phase is cut short. A rejection around resistance would be cause for concern on the downside, and open up a potential opportunity for shorts.

If, however, resistance is crossed and can go from acting as resistance to becoming support then would-be longs may find themselves with an opportunity for trade back up towards the 12900/13000 area while having a floor to work with for stops.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
