GBPUSD struggles with support-turned-resistance to pare weekly loss

GBPUSD struggles with support-turned-resistance to pare weekly loss

GBPUSD snapped a two-day winning streak on Thursday while retreating from a previous support line stretched from November 22. It’s worth noting, however, that late Thursday’s corrective bounce in the Cable pair renewed bullish bias about the quote, especially amid the upbeat RSI conditions. With this, the support-turned-resistance line surrounding 1.2650 challenges the Pound Sterling buyers. Apart from that, a convergence of the 100 and 200-bar Exponential Moving Average (EMA), around 1.2660 by the press time, also acts as a tough nut to crack for the bulls. In a case where the prices remain firmer past 1.2660, a quick run-up toward a one-month-old resistance line, close to 1.2770 at the latest, can’t be ruled out.

Meanwhile, the GBPUSD pair sellers need validation from the previous day’s low of near 1.2570 to take fresh positions. Even so, a two-month-old horizontal support zone surrounding 1.2520–2500 will challenge the quote’s downside momentum. Following that, the mid-November 2023 swing low of around 1.2370 will act as the final defense of the Cable buyers before giving control to the bears.

Overall, the GBPUSD pair buyers flex muscles ahead of the key week comprising a slew of UK and US data.
