British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) showing signs of support at the 1.28 level

The British pound has pulled back a bit during the trading session on Tuesday, showing signs of support at the 1.28 level. The market bouncing from there is a good sign, as we continue to see reasons for value hunting.

The British pound has pulled back against the US dollar during early trading on Tuesday but has also found enough support at the 1.28 level to turn things around and show signs of life. By doing so it should send this market back towards the 1.30 level.

That is a large, round, psychologically significant number that will continue to push the market around. As Brexit continues to steal headlines, this will have a major influence on this pair. The 200 day EMA sits just below which of course is supportive, and therefore I believe that traders are going to continue to look at these pullbacks as short-term buying opportunities based upon value.

Momentum Indicators
