Technical Analysis


Last weekend, the media began spreading news about the discovery of a new strain of coronavirus in the UK and several other European countries. For this reason, strict quarantine measures have been introduced in London.

The event caused a strong collapse in GBP quotes, but the downtrend was stopped by the lower border of the upward channel. It is possible that the situation will stabilize.


An inverted head and shoulders pattern has been formed on the chart of the currency pair. Quotes have already updated their maximum values since the beginning of October, which indicates the prevalence of bulls.


The chart of the currency pair remains at the locally high price level after breaking the downtrend line. The trend may continue.
