GBPUSD bulls struggle to keep reins as UK inflation loom

GBPUSD bulls struggle to keep reins as UK inflation loom

GBPUSD retreats toward 1.2700 ahead of the UK inflation release on Wednesday, after snapping a two-day losing streak the previous day. Even so, a two-month-old rising trend channel joins the upbeat RSI (14) line, not overbought, to keep the Cable buyers hopeful unless the quote stays beyond 1.2620. Even if the pair defies the bullish chart formation by sliding beneath the 1.2620 support, the 200-SMA surrounding 1.2510 will act as the last defense of the bull before directing prices toward the early October swing high of around 1.2335.

Meanwhile, an upward sloping resistance line stretched from early September, close to 1.2785 by the press time, guards immediate run-up of the GBPUSD pair. Following that, the 23.6% Fibonacci ratio of the pair’s March-July upside and the aforementioned channel’s upper line, respectively near 1.2830 and 1.2920, will test the Pound Sterling buyers. In a case where the quote stays firmer past 1.2920, the late July peak of around 1.3000 and the yearly peak of 1.3142 will lure the bulls.

Overall, the GBPUSD bulls are in the driver’s seat as markets await the UK inflation and the US CB Consumer Confidence.
