GBP/USD

The price fluctuations of the pound over the last month have a pronounced flat character, forming a horizontal triangle on the chart. The structure of the last bearish wave of March 13 is developing according to a clear algorithm, which lacks the final part. The middle part of the wave (B) is fully formed.

Forecast:

The price is at the lower limit of the converging flat corridor, which can be broken in the next day. Before the active phase of decline, there is a high probability of a sharp increase in volatility, with a short-term rise in the price to the resistance zone.
