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

Pound buyers today are trying to form a new lower boundary of the upward channel and break the downward trend. While trading above the support level of 1.2501, we can expect to maintain the momentum for correction, the target of which will be the resistance of 1.2543. The only consolidation above this range will lead to an update of the highs of 1.2585 and 1.2639, where I recommend taking the profit. If the pressure on the pound continues, the breakout of the range of 1.2501 will lead to an update of the lows of last week with the support test of 1.2471 and 1.2439, where you can open long positions immediately on the rebound.

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

Bears will count on a good report on the US economy, and the breakout of the support of 1.2501 will only increase the pressure on the pound and lead to new lows in the area of 1.2471 and 1.2439, where I recommend taking the profits. In the scenario of buyers returning to the market, the formation of a false breakout in the area of 1.2543 will be a signal to open short positions. Otherwise, you can sell the pound on a rebound from the maximum of 1.2585.
