As seen on the 4-hour chart, the GBP/USD pair completed a fall to the retracement level of 61.8% (1.2969), but neither the end of time nor the close occurred below. As a result, traders need to wait for either the first or the second to start trading on Monday, April 22. The strengthening of the pair under the Fibo level of 61.8% will work in favor of the American dollar and the continuation of the fall in the direction of the retracement level of 50.0% (1.2868). The rebound from the level of 61.8% will allow us to expect a reversal in favor of the British pound and some growth in the direction of the retracement level of 76.4% (1.3094).
The Fibo grid is built according to the extremes of September 20, 2018, and January 3, 2019.

There are no emerging divergences on the current chart in any indicator.
