Hot forecast for GBP/USD on 10/04/2023

There is nothing surprising about the fact that the market stood still on Friday despite the release of the US Department of Labor report, as both Europe and North America were observing Good Friday. However, the contents of the report were quite interesting. It was not about the unemployment rate, which remained unchanged as expected, but about the number of new non-farm jobs created, which was only 236,000. It was expected to be 250,000, while in the previous month 326,000 new jobs were created. In other words, the US labor market is clearly losing momentum, which of course increases the chances of a gradual easing of the monetary policy of the Federal Reserve. And it will naturally put pressure on the dollar. The only thing is to wait for the market's reaction after the opening of the US trading session, since Europe is still observing a holiday.

Number of new non-farm jobs created (United States):

The GBPUSD pair is in the stage of a pullback from the resistance level of 1.2500. As a result, the pound has lost about 0.8%, which is approximately 110 pips. Despite the ongoing pullback, the uptrend persists, as shown by the recent update of the local high of the medium-term.

On the four-hour chart, the RSI downwardly crossed the 50 middle line, during the pullback. In the intraday period, the signal points to the growth in the volume of short positions.

The Alligator's MAs are intertwined in the 4-hour time frame, signaling a slowing bull cycle. In the daily chart, the Alligator's MA's are still heading upward, reflecting a bullish cycle.


We can assume that the pullback serves as a time of regrouping trading forces, during which a new wave of growth is possible. However, in order to make this a reality, a number of technical conditions must be met. First and foremost, the current pullback should end. The 1.2380/1.2400 area may serve as a support. A subsequent signal in favor of growth is when the price trades within the level of 1.2500, and as a result, the volume of long positions may increase.

As for the bearish scenario, traders consider it as a full-size correction, where the current pullback will remain towards the level of 1.2300.

The complex indicator analysis unveiled that in the intraday and short-term periods, technical indicators are pointing to the pullback. Meanwhile, in the medium-term periods, the indicators are reflecting an upward cycle.
