GBP/USD: plan for the American session on April 1. The pound regained a number of positions after falling last Friday

To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:

Buyers have reached a large resistance of 1.3119, which I paid attention to in my morning review. In the second half of the day, breakdown and consolidation above the range of 1.1319 are required, which will lead to a new demand for the pound and an update of the highs of 1.3162 and 1.3212, where I recommend fixing the profits. In the case of a downward correction scenario, the support will be at 1.3061. You can also look at the long positions on the rebound from the minimum 1.3011.

To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

The bears showed themselves after the test of resistance 1.3119, to which I paid attention in the morning. Now, the sellers' first goal is to return to the support area of 1.3061, which was formed in the morning. Its breakdown will lead to a larger downward movement in the area of minimum 1.3011, where I recommend fixing the profits. When the growth scenario is above the high of 1.3119, it is best to rely on new sales to rebound from the resistance of 1.3162.
