GBP/USD: Post Brexit Rebound at Risk Into Bank of England Meeting

Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: Sterling is trading within the confines of an ascending median-line formation off the lows with the exchange rate turning from the upper parallels today in Europe. Heading into the Bank of England interest rate decision tomorrow, the risk remains for a set-back before moving higher with a general constructive outlook in play while within this formation.

The pair is now testing interim support at 1.3151 with subsequent support objectives at 1.3094 & 1.3036- both areas of interest for possible exhaustion / long-entries. Initial resistance is now eyed at 1.3223 with a breach above the 1.33-handle targeting the 78.6% retracement at 1.3375 & 1.3450.
