This second screenshot has been taken a few hours later. You can now see the white bearish candle has turned into a bullish candle. So we should wait for the daily candle to close before we make any trading decision. When you are trading, you should take the multi timeframe approach. What this means is that we will use the lower timeframes of H1 and H4 for making the entry decision. Daily Chart will be the main chart but we then shift to H1 and H4 and look for the possible entry signals. We must ensure that our stop loss should be less than 50 pips.

The important question is why did the bearish daily candle turn into a bullish candle? Today was GBP Official Bank Rate Meeting.

The Bank of England has voted to keep interest rates steady in a release timed to fall after the general election.

Policymakers made the decision to keep interest rates at a record low of 0.5 percent at their May 7-8 meeting, but made their announcement Monday to avoid the election.

This decision is enough to take the steam off the GBPUSD rally. So we have to wait for the today’s daily candle to close to confirm the bearish divergence signal.
