Daily chart for GBPUSD
Volatility

Tuesday's trading range was 83 pips (0.62%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of 88 pips. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 1.3342 and 1.3442 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 1.3305. The forex pair found buyers again today around 1.3342 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 1.3345 in the prior session and at 1.3354 two days ago.

Trend

Though the FX pair is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Order Flow

Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 1.3442 where further buy stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 1.3205, downside momentum could accelerate should the market break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to June's low at 1.3254, downside momentum might speed up should Cable mark new lows for the month.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being very bearish.
