British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) breaks through notable resistance level
GBP/USD managed to rally through the key $1.3175 resistance level on Friday, with the pair breaking out of a long-term downtrend ahead of today’s parliamentary vote.
Technically speaking, expect this uptrend to continue as long as we do not break below the $1.3012 level. Thus, further upside looks likely, with $1.3258 and $1.33 the next big resistance levels to watch.
