GBP / USD plan for the US session on March 26. The pound enjoys the support after the emergence of alternatives on Brexit

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

Pound buyers are gradually returning to the market after news that tomorrow there will be a vote in Parliament for alternative Brexit scenarios. Given this situation, trading will be above the support of 1.3215 as demand for the pound will continue, which leaves a chance for a resumption of the upward correction to the highs of 1.3266 and 1.3316, where I recommend taking profits. In the case of a repeated decline of the pound below the level of 1.3215 amid the news on Brexit, it is best to consider long positions on a rebound from the lows of 1.3166 and 1.3126.

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

The bears have missed the resistance level of 1.3215 and the main task in the afternoon will be to return to this range. In this scenario, trading will continue in a wider side channel with an upper border of 1.3240 and a lower border of 1.3166. In case of further growth in GBP/USD, it is best to consider short positions on a false breakdown from the resistance of 1.3266 or a rebound from the high of 1.3316. Important fundamental data on the UK economy is not expected today, hence, the whole emphasis will be on the news about Brexit.
