The British pound registered a volatile session against the dollar on Wednesday. The pair opened at 1.2448 and ended at 1.2432. The graphics continue to develop between moving average, while the index of relative strength remained on neutral territory. In the short term outlook remains neutral as overcoming the levels at 1.2516 or 1.2360 will determine prevailing attitudes.
At the upside, daily cloud top at 1.2473, reinforced by Tenkan-sen line, marks the first upper trigger, with extension above 1.2500 (top of hourly Ichimoku cloud that caps near-term action) needed to signal stronger upside attempts. On the downside, loss of 1.2420/13 pivots would risk fresh weakness towards lower triggers at 1.2360/56 (daily Kijun-sen / cloud base) and signal bearish continuation on firm break lower. Res: 1.2466; 1.2473; 1.2500; 1.2522Sup: 1.2414; 1.2395; 1.2356; 1.2338.
Pound/Dollar tried to lift up in the end of the week, topped at 1.2539. Overall price is still in the downward phase after break below the bullish price channel, but has not yet managed to stay convincingly below EMA 200 and moves in the minor ascending channel. The outlook is neutral for now, perhaps with slight bullish signals for testing 1.2550. The nearest support is at 1.2475. A clear break below that area could trigger further downside pressure testing a key support 1.2375, which needs to be clearly pierced down for the continuation of the bearish scenario.
