GBP / USD pair: plan for the US session on January 31. Low pound activity related directly to uncertainty with Brexit

Trading 31 jan 2019 Donner votre avis

To open long positions on the GBP / USD pair, you need:

The situation has not changed in comparison with the morning forecast. British pound buyers may resume an uptrend but this will require a breakdown of the resistance at 1.3135. Only after the prospect of updating the highs of 1.3214 and 1.3260 will open, where I recommend taking profits. However, a larger upward movement will depend on negotiations between British Prime Minister Theresa May and EU representatives. In the case of a downward correction, I recommend buying the pound only if there is a false breakdown around 1.3053 or for a rebound from 1.2971.

To open short positions on the GBP / USD pair, you need:

The failure to consolidate above resistance 1.3135, which was observed in the first half of the day, led to an attempt to resume the downward movement in the pound, and as long as trading continues below this range, sellers will expect to return to the support area 1.3053, a breakthrough that could lead to a further drop in GBP USD with a minimum of 1.2971 and 1.2894, where I recommend to take profits. In the case of a pound rising above 1.3135, it is best to look at short positions after updating the highs of the month at 1.3260 and 1.3348. Any news of the failure of negotiations between May and EU representatives could lead to a rapid fall in the pound.
