To open long positions on GBP/USD, you need:
Problems with Brexit and the increase in the probability of the UK leaving the EU without an agreement led to a decrease in the British pound again, which indicates a continuation of the downward trend. However, the fall in GBP/USD in the first half of the day was restrained by the level of 1.2560, to which I paid attention in my morning review. At the moment, it is best to return to purchases after a repeated test and the formation of a false breakdown at a minimum of 1.2560 or to rebound from a larger level of 1.2500. The main task of the bulls will be to update the maximum of 1.2623 and consolidate on it.
To open short positions on GBP/USD, you need:
The bears reached the next support level of 1.2560, where the expected profit-taking began at the end of the month. At the moment, short positions can be returned after updating THE resistance of 1.2623, provided that a false breakdown is formed, or to rebound from a maximum of 1.2686. The main purpose of the bears will be a breakout and consolidation below 1.2559, which will keep the downward trend in pair and lead to a test of 1.2500.
Trading is below 30 and 50 moving averages, which indicates a return to the market of sellers pound.
The pound growth in the second half of the day will be limited by the upper limit of the indicator around 1.2625.
