Posted by Chris Advincula on Nov 11, 2016 6:51:49 AM

Sterling fell from the chart peak of 1.5015 Jun 21 and tested 1.2800 on July 5, soon after the Brexit vote. There was a noteable market chatter that sterling will fall to 1.2000, which ultimately became true on Oct 5.

The 14 daily moving average slopes down from 1.3230 with a rebound at 1.2200. However, the heavier 30 day moving average shows a decline to 1..2450 where the two converge. The 12200 level is the 14 DMA support.

There is a symmetrical half triangle formed with a break at the significant 1.2800 on Oct 5 and fell to 1.1936. 

The current spot GBPUSD has tested the intraday high today of 1.2674 from 1.2550 in Europe. Once again, the 1.2800 remains a crucial level.. The 14 day RSI shows a potential reversal at the 60 level equivalent to 1.2800.

The 14 day RSI shows the first overbought reversal at 64.27 = 1.4643 on Jun 23. While the second overbought level is 1.3440 Sept 5 RSI 61.59
