The pair has been consolidating sideways above 1.2150 for a while now, and it has formed several spinning top bars on the four-hour time frame, so there might be some retracement in the near future, but I think that the overall trend remains bearish for the moment.
The British pound recorded a neutral session against the US dollar on Wednesday. The pair opened at 1.2292 and the price managed to break the resistance at 1.2300 twice. In the end, the pound ended at 1.2283 and if the downward trend continues couple will move to the next support at 1.2120.
The British pound fell against the dollar on Friday. By the close of US trading GBP/USD was trading at 1.2232, shedding 0.18%. I believe that the support is now located at the level of 1.2134, Monday's low, and resistance is likely at the level of 1.2334 -the maximum of Wednesday.
Pound / dollar was volatile last week. Trade signals are neutral. Initial support is at 1.2170 followed by 1.2135. Intraday resistance is seen at 1.2240, break of which could trigger further bullish pressure testing 1.2300 / 30. Overall I still prefer a bearish scenario but the more price remains above 1.20, the bullish correction / reversal scenario of the formation hammer should remain valid.
The pound registered a slight decrease against the dollar on Friday. The price of the opening session was close to closing, respectively, 1.2250 and 1.2221. The trend was volatile and early bearish sentiment prevailed. The pair hit bottom at 1.2170, but the pound subsequently recovered partial losses. Short-term expectations remain in favor of the US currency. In this case the support at 1.2079 could be tested soon.
So what do we think the UK GDP is gonna do to the cable? 0.3% increase (meets expectations) will likely get a lot of volatility and might have short term increase in gbp/usd. Anyone think the opposite? Anyone think it might be negative?
Pound/dollar made another indecisive movement last week. The bias is neutral for now. Immediate resistance is at 1.2225. A clear break above that area could trigger further bullish pressure for testing 1.2270 - 1.2300. Intraday support is 1.2150, whose breach could lead to downward pressure for testing 1.2080 but important support remains at 1.2000. The more price remains above 1.20, the bullish correction/reversal scenario of the formation hammer should remain valid.
The pound reported a second consecutive day of growth on Monday. The pair climbed by 53 pips to a closing price of 1.2238. The session took place in the final values 1.2248 and 1.2143. Overall pound closed sixth consecutive month of losses. The currency lost nearly 15.5% against the US dollar since Brexit. The Range in the couple of early October remains valid. A break of moving averages would open the possibility of testing the upper boundary at 1.2320.
