To open long positions on GBP / USD you need:
Yesterday's data on the services sector were ignored by the market, which led to a further decline in the pound. At the moment, a side channel is being formed, and long positions are best viewed under the condition of a false breakdown in the support area of 1.3109 - 1.3100. Otherwise, you can buy GBP / USD for a rebound from a minimum of 1.3049. The main task of the bulls will be a breakthrough and consolidation above the upper boundary of the side channel in the area of 1.3179, which will lead to a larger upward correction to the maximum of 1.3248, where I recommend fixing the profits.
To open short positions on GBP / USD you need:
Sellers have the opposite task. False breakdown around 1.3180 will be a signal to open short positions, but the main task will be fixing under the lower border of the side channel in the area of 1.3109, which will lead to a larger sale with updating the minimums of 1.3049 and 1.2973, where I recommend fixing the profit. With the growth scenario above the resistance of 1.3179, short positions can be safely opened from the high of 1.3248.
Trade is conducted below the 30-day and 50-day moving, indicating a downward correction.
A break of the lower border of the Bollinger Bands indicator around 1.3109 will lead to a new wave of pound decline. Growth will be limited to the upper boundary of the indicator in the area of 1.3180.
