GBP/USD: plan for the European session on December 6. A 5-day discussion of the agreement on Brexit started in the UK

To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:

The sharp rise in the pound is replaced by a fall. It has long been a familiar scenario for us. At present, a breakthrough of resistance at 1.2732 will be a signal to buy the pound with a close to yesterday's high of 1.2795, where I recommend taking profits. In case the GBP/USD declines in the first half of the day, it is best to rely on purchases only after the formation of a false breakdown around 1.2674 or a rebound from the new low of 1.2625. Any news from the UK Parliament can lead to a surge in the volatility of the pound, so do not forget about the placement of stop orders.

To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

The bears managed to build a new descending channel, not letting the bulls update the Tuesday high yesterday. An unsuccessful consolidation above resistance of 1.2732 will be another signal to sell GBP/USD with the aim of breaking through and consolidating below support 1.2674, which will lead to a larger decline of the pound to the area of the low of 1.2625 and 1.2569, where I recommend to lock in profits. In case of growth above 1.2732 in the first half of the day, short positions can be returned to the rebound from the resistance of 1.2795.
