To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:
Demand for the pound will continue only after news of the results of the meeting between British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the head of the Democratic Unionist Party of Great Britain. If the DUP goes to the conditions proposed by Johnson, then the demand for the pound will return, and a breakout of resistance at 1.2833 will be a signal to open long positions in the hope of updating new highs in the areas of 1.2916 and 1.2974, where I recommend profit taking. In the scenario of a downward correction, which is also more likely, since there can be no less problems in the UK Parliament than with the EU, it is best to return to GBP/USD after the support test at 1.2741, or immediately to a rebound from a low of 1.2664, where a volume of big players are concentrated.
To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:
Sellers need bad Brexit news, and the formation of a false breakout in the resistance area of 1.2833 will be an additional signal for the pound’s sales in the hope of updating the lows of 1.2741 and 1.2664, where I recommend profit taking. A larger drop depends on Johnson’s negotiations with the DUP. Today’s endorsement at the EU summit Brexit deal could lead to the pound’s growth above the resistance of 1.2833. In this scenario, it is best to consider new short positions only after updating the high of 1.2619, and best of all, from the major resistance of 1.2974.
