The GBPUSD fell to a 7-week low last week after UK exit poll result indicated a potential hung parliament, bottomed at 1.2635 but closed higher at 1.2743. From a 4H chart perspective as you can see on my H4 chart below, we have a pin bar formed after slipped below 1.2670 support area suggests a potential bullish pressure especially if price able to make a clear break and daily close back above 1.2780 testing 1.2900 region. On the downside, a clear break and daily close below 1.2670/35 would expose 1.2500 region.
Pound seems stabilise around 1.274 level after sharp drop from Friday, but with political uncertainty and the UK's weaken position in soon-to-start Brexit negotiation, the pair will likely to continue its downward trend.
After having founding strong support near 1.2710 levels, the GBP/USD pair regained poise in the Asian trades, now accelerating the gain towards the next key resistance located at 1.2780, as dust settles over the UK general election aftermath.
The spot is back on the bids, despite mixed market sentiment and rallying treasury yields, as the GBP bulls make another attempt to take on the recovery from seven-week lows of 1.2632, in a bid to regain 1.28 handle.
