GBPUSD Technical Analysis

Coming into today the current price of GBPUSD is sitting close to its 20 and 100 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 100 day average, which is 177.6 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPUSD’s price has gone up 8 them.
