GBPUSD bulls keep the reins despite latest inaction

GBPUSD bulls keep the reins despite latest inaction

GBPUSD stays defensive above 200-SMA after posting the first weekly gain in four, making rounds to 1.2680 early Tuesday. In doing so, the Cable pair defends last week’s upside break of the key SMA support, around 1.2660 by the press time, while also edging higher past a one-week-old rising support line, close to 1.2645 at the latest. Not only the pair’s ability to stay beyond the key SMA and an immediate support line, but an absence of the trend-negative oscillators also keeps the Pound Sterling buyers hopeful. It’s worth noting, however, that the quote’s sustained trading beneath 1.2645 will defy the bullish bias and make it vulnerable to aim for the monthly low surrounding 1.2520.

On the other hand, the 1.2700 round figure guards the immediate upside of the GBPUSD pair amid a lack of major data/events, as well as due to the cautious mood ahead of today’s US Durable Goods Orders. That said, the Cable buyers target a downward-sloping resistance line from late December 2023, near 1.2740 as we write. In a case where the Pound Sterling manages to stay firmer past 1.2740, the yearly high of near 1.2785 and the late 2023 peak of 1.2830 will test the upside momentum targeting the 1.3000 psychological magnet.

To sum up, the GBPUSD pair’s latest performance appears less important for the bears as far as the price stays beyond the key SMA and the short-term support line.
