Downtrend in gbpusd May be Over

After falling the whole week, gbp/usd may be turning around this week and go up. If the pair fails to break Friday low, we may wait a few pushes up this week. There are two levels of support down. The first one is Sunday open low which was made in the first 15 minutes on the open and then cable rallied and formed a high of 1.5436, which failed to be broken on Frankfurt open. Pound briefly went below Asian low 1.5399 by one pip before running sharply upwards. We can still expect a retracement to 1.5380 level, which I expect to hold. The next level of support is Friday low: 1.5335. 

Resistance is today’s high (Frankfurt open high) at 1.5437 (200 ema and sma are blocking the way upwards), followed by 1.5490 (same indicators on 30 minute chart) and 1.5508 (the high of 27th of August). 

There is no key fundamental news today that might affect exchange rate of the pair. Tomorrow will see: GBP Net Consumer Credit, Net Lending Sec. on Dwellings, Mortgage Approvals and most importantly Markit UK PMI Manufacturing SA all coming at 08:30 GMT. 

Key data from United States will be: USD ISM Manufacturing coming at: 14:00 GMT.
