GBPUSD extends pullback from 1.3090 ahead of the key UK data, as well as a speech from the BOE Governor Andrew Bailey, during early Friday. The downside bias also gains support from the sluggish RSI and MACD, which in turn suggests the pair’s further weakness towards the support line of a six-week-old triangle, near 1.2990 at the latest. Following that, the monthly low and 61.8% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) of the March-April moves, respectively around 1.2970 and 1.2945, will lure the pair sellers.
Alternatively, recovery moves will aim for the stated triangle’s upper line, surrounding 1.3090. Also acting as the short-term key resistance is the 200-SMA level close to the 1.3100 threshold. Should the quote rises past 1.3100, the mid-month high of 1.3146 and the monthly peak of 1.3166 may test the GBPUSD buyers. Following that, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level close to 1.3170 will act as an additional challenge for the bulls before retaking the controls.
