British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) rallies through key resistance
Hopes of a Brexit breakthrough have helped push GBP/USD through the crucial $1.3118 level. This brings about a greater chance that the pair will move into a more bullish phase, with the previous price action taking on a bullish falling wedge formation. Much of this will be reliant on fundamental factors, with hope of a deal driving upside.
From a technical perspective, the break above $1.3117 provides a more bullish outlook, with the current move lower looking like a retracement before we move higher. However, a break back below $1.2922 would provide a bearish outlook once more.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 1.33.
The projected lower bound is: 1.29.
The projected closing price is: 1.31.
