What can we expect from GBPUSD today?
GBPUSD on Tuesday dropped -0.26% to 1.21800. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.
Updated daily direction for GBPUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 1.21364 (S1).
Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 1.22160 or trades above daily pivot 1.21762. Break above could target R1 at 1.22198. While to the downside, we are looking at 1.21364 (S1) and daily low of 1.21326 as support levels. GBPUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 1.21326 would indicate selling pressure.
For the week to-date, take note that GBPUSD is mixed as compared to the prior week.
