GBP/USD Analysis

Following a lot of bullishness and new multi-year highs, this pair printed a bullish in-trend pin bar on Thursday, followed by a doji on Friday. This suggests that the current move up might have peaked for the time being. On the other hand, things still look and feel very bullish, and the upper channel trend line that I identified last week is currently acting as support after having provided resistance. Furthermore, there are no obvious obstacles above us before the key psychological level of 1.7250. Therefore it would not really be surprising if we were to make another new high today, even though due to a total absence of high-impact news for either side of this pair, it is highly likely to be a very quiet day.

Today I am only looking for a long, at a pull back to 1.7048.

GBPUSD 7714

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled for today concerning either the GBP or the USD. Therefore it is likely to be a very quiet day.
