What can we expect from GBPUSD today?

GBPUSD on Thursday dropped -0.3% to 1.26234. 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 1.25963 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 1.26817 or trades above daily pivot 1.2639. Break above could target R1 at 1.26661. While to the downside, we are looking at 1.25963 (S1) and daily low of 1.26119 as support levels. GBPUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 1.26119 would indicate selling pressure.

GBPUSD ended month of February trading session down by -0.5% or -63.3 pips lower.
