GBP - During morning trading EUR/GBP reached local highs near 0.8425 on a stronger euro, whereas yesterday's strong GDP data for the British pound left untouched since figures have lost their relevance.
The British Pound was up against the US Dollar on Friday. At the closing of trading session EUR GBP / USD has traded at 1.3228, gaining 0.49%. I believe that the support is now located at the level of 1.3055, Tuesday's low, and resistance is likely at level of 1.3302 - a maximum of Friday's trading.
The pair pound/dollar started to grow at the weakening of the dollar, but not strong. A support for the pound had the statistics. The volume of consumer credit in June increased from 1.59 to 1.87 billion. Mortgage lending in the same month increased from 2.90 to 3.3 billion. However, these data are insufficient for the couple go out from the lateral movement. Maybe next week something will change.
The GBPUSD had a bullish momentum yesterday topped at 1.3365. The bias is bullish in nearest term testing 1.3400/20 but overall I remain bearish and any upside pullback should be seen as a good opportunity to sell. Immediate support is seen around 1.3300. A clear break below that area could lead price to neutral zone in nearest term testing 1.3250 or lower.
Significant growth marked the pound against the dollar on Tuesday. So the British currency fully recovered its losses from the previous session and with a maximum for the day at 1.3364 has breached the first resistance at 1.3342. Short-term expectations are still in favor of the pound. In this case the pair can make a second test at a key level 1.3496. The Tuesday session opened at rate of 1.3174 and bullish trend was leading from the start. Finish line was crossed at a price of 1.3353.
Pound/dollar had upward momentum yesterday, topped at 1.3364. The bias is bullish in nearest term testing of 1.3400/20, but I mainly stay in the camp of bears yet. First support is seen at 1.3300. A clear break below that area could lead the price to neutral trade zone testing 1.3250 or lower.
