FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD has been one of the main movers in a quiet September kick-off, as investors await key events later this week and with the US out for the Labor Day.
The GBP/USD picked up momentum and managed to break above the 1.6610 resistance area, climbing to a high of 1.6643 before finding resistance. However with the subsequent dip contained by the former resistance area at 1.6610, the Cable was confined to a sideways phase. At time of writing, the GBP/USD is trading at 1.6620, up 0.16% on the day.
GBP/USD technical outlook
“The hourly chart presents a technical bullish stance, with indicators heading north above their midlines, and 20 SMA gaining upward slope below current price”, said Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet. “The 4 hours chart shows also a positive technical tone, yet some steady gains above mentioned 1.6630 level are required to confirm further advances, eyeing then a test of the 1.6670 price zone”.
Bednarik locates next support levels at 1.6600, 1.6570 and 1.6540, while she sees resistances at 1.6630, 1.6665 and 1.6700.
