GBP/USD 30min

GBPUSD Longs Favored Above 1.5540- Scalps Target May Highs

Notes:The pound has reacted to a key support confluence just below the 1.54-handle with the rebound taking out the ML extending off last week’s highs. The broader trade remains constructive above this feature with our near-term bullish invalidation eyed at the highlighted region around the 1.5542 with a break sub 1.5497 (close basis) putting the short-side back into play.

Bottom line: we’ll favor buying pullbacks / resistance triggers while above the ML with a breach above upper MLP / 1.57 targeting subsequent topside resistance objectives into the 1.5877 barrier. A quarter of the daily ATR yields profit targets of 37-40 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into tomorrow’s event risk with U.S. Inflation data likely to fuel added volatility in USD based pairs.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
