GBP / USD pair: plan for the US session on December 17. Pound returns Friday losses

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

Buyers managed to stay above the support of 1.2570 in the first half of the day and try to consolidate above the resistance of 1.2616, which will lead to a larger uptrend and return of GBP / USD to a maximum of 1.2673, where I recommend taking profits. In the case of a pound return below the support level of 1.2616, it is best to return to long positions to rebound from the morning low of 1.2570.

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

It is best to consider a short position on the pound in the second half of the day after the update of the major resistance to rebound from 1.2673. However, the main task will be the return and consolidation below the level of 1.2616, which will lead to a greater pressure on GBP / USD and a decline in the pair to the area of morning support 1.2570, where I recommend taking profits.
