GBP / USD plan for the US session on April 4. Buyers' optimism in the pound gradually decreases

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

The pound is gradually falling amid the lack of positive news related to Brexit. At the moment, only the formation of a false breakdown in the region of the lower boundary of the side channel at 1.3122 will be a signal to buy the GBP/USD pair. However, the optimal scenario for long positions will be the test of 1.3072 minimum, where you can immediately buy for a rebound. The task of the bulls in the afternoon will be the return and consolidation above the resistance of 1.3188, which will lead the pair to the maximum near 1.3227 and 1.3265, where I recommend taking profits.

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

The bears kept the resistance at 1.3188, which led to a gradual decrease in the pound. While there is no news on Brexit, the pound will remain under pressure and a breakthrough of the lower boundary of the side channel in the area of 1.3122 will only increase pressure on it, which will return the pair to the minima of 1.3072 and 1.3030, where I recommend taking profits. In case of a growth scenario of the pound in the second half of the day, you can rely on short positions again from the resistance of 1.3188. Otherwise, you can sell directly to the rebound from 1.3227 and 1.3265.
