Current trend
Last Friday, the GBP/USD pair moderately decreased, despite the release of positive preliminary data on business activity in the UK. After the publication, the price reached the level of 1.3170. Speculators immediately reacted to a sharp change in dynamics, exerting pressure through mass sales. First of all, the distrust of market participants caused the expectation of production activity growth. Earlier, several officials of the British regulator allowed a reduction in interest rates at the next meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee, which will be held next Thursday. One of the key drivers of this solution is the dynamics of the manufacturing sector.
USD was supported by the positive composite PMI index, which reached a 10-year high due to the acceleration of the services sector. Also, the intention of the government to impose additional duties on cars imported from Europe had a positive effect. Thus, Washington may want to increase the share of American companies in the European agricultural market.
This week, traders are focused on the decisions of the American and British monetary policy regulators. Committee meetings will be held on Wednesday and Thursday.
Support and resistance
On a 4-hour chart, the instrument tests a strong resistance of 1.3100. Bollinger Bands are directed horizontally, and the price range has declined slightly, indicating an intraday correction. The MACD and Stochastic do not give a clear signal to enter the market, confirming the presence of correction dynamics.
Resistance levels: 1.3100, 1.3160, 1.3225, 1.3297.
Support levels: 1.3048, 1.2984, 1.2921, 1.2836.
