The British pound recorded a neutral session against the US dollar on Tuesday. The currency pair opened at 1.3169 and the pound lost only 4 pips. Daytime extreme values were reached at 1.3177 and 1.3108 respectively. If the bullish trend of the last few sessions persists, there may be a break in the first resistance at 1.3260.
Pound/dollar was hesitant yesterday. The price attempted to decline, making a bottom of 1.3108, but closing higher at 1.3165. The signals are ascending in the short term for the testing of 1.3270, but the key resistance remains 1.3330. The closest support is 1.3130. A clear break below it could take the price to a neutral trading area with testing at 1.3075/50, but an important support remains 1.3000. Overall, I'm up.
GBP/USD is bullish and it will likely continue climbing next week. That said, for a further rally above the sideways consolidation to be confirmed it will have to break out above the last high at 1.3337.
The pound lost positions against the dollar on Monday. The British currency interrupted the positive impulse from Friday and collapsed. As a result, support at 1.3071 was broken.
