GBPUSD retreat appears elusive beyond 1.2650

GBPUSD retreat appears elusive beyond 1.2650

GBPUSD extends the late 2023 pullback from a five-month-old horizontal resistance area towards 1.2700 during early Tuesday. In doing so, the Cable pair justifies the RSI (14) line’s retreat from the overbought region, as well as the sluggish MACD signals. However, the bull cross on the SMA joins the quote’s sustained trading beyond an ascending trend line from November 01, close to 1.2650 at the latest, to keep the buyers hopeful. It’s worth noting that a clear downside break of 1.2650 will quickly drag prices to the 50-SMA support of 1.2490, a break of which will allow the 100-SMA level of 1.2450 to test the bears.

On the flip side, GBPUSD buyers should remain cautious unless they witness a clear upside break of the aforementioned horizontal resistance area surrounding 1.2800-2820. Following that, the Pound Sterling buyers could aim for a late July swing high of near the 1.3000 psychological magnet. Although the RSI conditions are likely to test the bulls around the stated round figure, the pair’s successful trading beyond the same will easily surpass the year 2023 peak near 1.3145.

Overall, the GBPUSD pair may witness further downside but the bears are less likely to retake control beyond 1.2650.
