GBP/USD (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

Despite the UK inflation and the labor market negative macroeconomic statistics which we received last week - the British pound avoided sales and stabilized around the 56th figure. There are two key factors that support demand for the pound. Firstly, the pair EUR/GBP quotations reduction amid the single European currency weakness. Secondly, the debt market positive dynamics.

The mark 1.5670 continues to demonstrate its strength in the resistance status. The bulls' attempt to break through this barrier was not successful.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD histogram is in a positive territory. The price is consolidating.

Trading recommendations

We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.5670, the next one is the level of 1.5775.
