FXStreet (Łódź) - FXStreet Chief Analyst Valeria Bednarik notes that the stronger than expected UK Construction PMI data pushed the GBP/USD to a new year high.

Key quotes

"So far the pair has reached a daily high of 1.7176, and the technical picture continues to suggests more gains ahead, as the 4 hours chart shows indicators heading back north after partially correcting its overbought readings."

"In the same time frame, 20 SMA advanced further, now offering intraday support at 1.7095, albeit buyers are expected to surge as early as on approached to 1.7130."

"The 1.7200 figure seems still a quite likely target, while once above, the pair has room to extend up to 1.7250 during the upcoming sessions."
