British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) consolidating at key support level

GBP/USD has managed to remain above the $1.2823 support level this morning, following a fall into the crucial $1.2723 support level.

The bearish trend looks likely to sustain given the rising likeliness of a harder form of Brexit, with UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposal failing to gain much traction. A break below the $1.2723 level could provide us with a good selling opportunity, utilising this recent rebound to place a stop above. We would need to see a break through the $1.2927 mark to provide a more bullish outlook for the pair.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
