GBP/USD. 12th of April. The trading system "Regression Channels". Pound sterling in complete confusion
The upper linear regression channel: direction - up.
The lower linear regression channel: direction - down.
Moving average (20; smoothed) - sideways.
The GBP/USD currency pair again changed the direction of movement and fixed below the moving average line. In recent days, trading on this pair is more like a "swing". There is no trend as such. Traders clearly do not know how to respond to the Brexit shift for six months. Recall that at the end of 2018 and early 2019, everyone thought that Brexit was at the finish line. However, the reality was different. Now Britain, led by Theresa May, is likely to face new negotiations with the European Union, as the parliament flatly refused to approve the version of the "deal" that reached in negotiations with EU leaders Theresa May. Or, Theresa May will have to find new ways to help negotiate with the majority of parliamentarians. The "deal" in the form of "Parliament approves the agreement, and Theresa May resigns" also did not suit the parliament. A few months ago, it was difficult to imagine what scenario would lead Britain to leave the EU. Now it is difficult to imagine what the whole procedure will end. It is possible that the country will remain in the EU. There are no important macroeconomic publications planned for the UK today. Thus, there will be no special influence of the foundation on the movement of the currency pair. The technical picture shows a flat or at least no trend.

In addition to the technical picture should also take into account the fundamental data and the time of their release.
