GBPUSD braces for the first weekly gain in four as 200-EMA and a two-week-old support line defends Cable buyers. However, multiple failures to cross a one-month-long horizontal hurdle keep the sellers hopeful of breaking the 1.2000 key support. Following that, not only the ball could drop on the bear’s court for the fourth consecutive weekly fall but the pair might also portray a quick slump to the mid-1.1700s. In a case where the quote remains weak past 1.1700s, the early November swing high surrounding 1.1550 and November 09 low near 1.1355 could gain the market’s attention.
Alternatively, the aforementioned fortnight-long horizontal resistance area near 1.2130 restricts the short-term GBPUSD upside. Should the quote Cable pair crosses the nearby hurdles, the early-month peak of 1.2345 and the monthly high near 1.2445 will be on the bull’s radar while aiming for a positive end to the volatile 2022.
Overall, GBPUSD is ready to return to the bear’s desk after a brief absence.
