GBP / USD pair: plan for the US session on December 13. Pound froze waiting for news on Brexit

To open long positions on the GBP / USD pair, you need:

Buyers completed the installation for the first half of the day and broke above 1.2620, which led to a new wave of pound growth. At the moment, a breakthrough and consolidation above resistance 1.2667 is needed which will allow us to count on updating the highs around 1.2714 and 1.2752, where I recommend taking profits. In the case of a pair decline in the second half of the day, long positions can again look at the rebound from the support of 1.2618.

To open short positions on the GBP / USD pair, you need:

Sellers managed to form a false breakdown at the resistance level of 1.2675 and as long as the trade is conducted below this range. The pressure on GBP / USD will remain, which may lead to a further decrease in the support area of 1.2618, where I recommend taking profits. In the case of a further larger upward correction and a breakthrough of the resistance of 1.2667, you can take a closer look at short positions at the rebound from the highs of 1.2714 and 1.2752.
