Technical analysis of GBP/USD for 20/03/2019

Technical market overview:

Despite the lower low made at the level of 1.3183 not much has happened at the GBP/USD market as the pair is still moving inside of the narrow zone located between the levels of 1.3207 - 1.3304 as the horizontal correction continues after a wide swings we witnessed last week. There is no important price or candlestick pattern present currently in this market that would indicate a possible breakout in either direction, just a bunch of random Pin Bars here and there. The momentum is now neutral but can pick up if the volatility will increase. The longer time frame trend remains bullish, so the bias is still to the upside and the main technical resistance is seen at the levels of 1.3362 and 1.3379.

Trading recommendations:

The market is still in a consolidation phase, so it will be better to wait for a trading setup after the consolidation terminates. The best one would be a breakout in either direction, but due to the fact that the trend is still up, traders should prefer to buy in the local corrections and wait for the market to resume the up move. Only a sustained breakout below the level of 1.2959 would invalidate the short-term bullish bias and deepen the correction.
