GBP/USD retesting uptrend

The GBP/USD pair crashed in the last hours and now is trading at 1.2048. In the short term, it is trading somehow sideways but the bias remains bullish. It could try to test and retest the near-term support levels before jumping higher again.

Fundamentally, the UK CBI Realized Sales came in at -19 points versus the 2 points expected. Tomorrow, the US CB Consumer Confidence and BOE Gov Bailey Speaks represent high-impact events. The US data could drive the price during the week. Better-than-expected figures should lift the greenback. On the contrary, poor figures could weaken the USD.

GBP/USD Trapped Within A Range!

As you can see on the h1 chart, the price challenges the uptrend line which represents dynamic support. The 1.2018 represents a downside obstacle as well. It's trapped between the 1.2018 and the 1.2153 levels.

As long as it stays above the uptrend line, the bias remains bullish. False breakdowns could announce a new bullish momentum.

GBP/USD Forecast!

A new higher high, jumping and closing above 1.2117 today's high brings new long setups. On the other hand, a valid breakdown below the uptrend line and below 1.2010 brings selling opportunities as the rate could develop a strong sell-off.
