GBP / USD pair: plan for the American session on January 10. Little interest from traders in the British pound

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

Buyers could not keep the price above the support of 1.2753 in the first half of the day, although there were preconditions for further growth. At the moment, only a confident return above the level of 1.2753 will return the chance to continue the upward trend, which will lead to the test of resistance 1.2798. Only after such a scenario will it be possible to count on updating the highs of 1.2868 and 1.2929, where I recommend taking profits. In the case of a decrease in the pound in the second half of the day, it is best to consider long positions to rebound from the lows of 1.2708 and 1.2658.

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

As long as trading is below 1.2753, one can count on a further decline in the pound. A breakdown of support at 1.2708 will lead to a rapid decline in GBP / USD to the lows of 1.2658 and 1.2614, where I recommend taking profits. Positive news on Brexit from the UK Parliament could lead to a sharp increase in the pound. In this scenario, short positions can be opened after the highs of 1.2868 and 1.2929 are updated.
