GBP/USD: Ichimoku analysis (Dec. 20)
Daily. The pair is apparently finishing consolidation. On the daily chart the prices spend a brief time inside the Tenkan-Kijun channel, and by the the end of the week sterling managed to get to positive territory. The prices haven’t even touched Kijun-sen (KS), which shows the weakness of the bears. Note that the indicator is still positive: golden cross (C) is still in place and the Cloud expands upwards.

H4. The pair was trading within the Ichimoku Cloud and the market was in the sideways state. Nevertheless, in the second half of the week the pair rebounded from the lower border of the Cloud. If the prices fix above the horizontal Kijun-sen at $1.6350, this can lead to the further strengthening of sterling. Otherwise, the market will have to find support at the $1.6300 handle.
