Pound / dollar had momentum up yesterday, making a peak at 1.2990. The trade signals are upward, but I note that we need a clear breakthrough over the key 1.2985 resistance for the sequel to the bullish test scenario at 1.3050 or higher. We have immediate support at 1.2930. A clear breakthrough underneath it could take the price to a neutral trading area testing 1.2880.
The British pound was up against the US dollar on Friday. By the close of US trading, GBP / USD was trading at 1.3037, gaining 0.75%. I believe that support is now at around 1.2864, Tuesday's low, and resistance is likely at 1.3051, Thursday's high.
On Tuesday, the pound-dollar currency pair lost 40 pips of its value. The day was opened at a price of 1.3001 and began with the prevailing power of the bears. Just before noon, they recorded a bottom of 1.2953. The next few hours were volatile for the currency pair. The bulls managed to make a bigger move, breaking the resistance at 1.3030 and recording a peak of 1.3032, but at the end of the day the quote stayed away from these values at a price of 1.2961.
Pound / dollar attempted to decrease yesterday, reaching bottom at 1.2926, but closed higher at 1.2975. The couple adhered to the trendline of support. The signals are neutral, possibly with light bullish signals for testing the key resistance 1.3050, which should be clearly pierced for the sequel to the bullish scenario. Intraday support we have at 1.2930 / 25. A clear breakthrough below this zone may cause further bearings to test for 1.2880.
