GBP/USD: plan for the European session on March 8. The pound continues to follow a trend

To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:

The breakthrough of the next lower limit of the short-term side channel retained the downward trend in the British pound. Currently, buyers have the task of returning and consolidating above the resistance of 1.3117, which will lead to a larger upward correction to the area of resistance at 1.3179, where the upper limit of the downward channel passes. In case the GBP/USD further declines, long positions can be considered on a false breakdown around 1.3049 or buy the pound to rebound from a new low of 1.2973.

To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

While trade will be conducted below the resistance of 1.3117, where the moving averages will pass, the pressure on the pound will continue. The formation of a false breakout in that area in the first half of the day will be a direct signal to sell the GBP/USD based on a test of a low of 1.3049 and an update of support at 1.2973, where I recommend taking profits. In case of growth above 1.3117, you can sell immediately to rebound from a high of 1.3179.
