GBP / USD pair: plan for the American session on January 11. The pound rose on inflation data, but potential is limited

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

British pound buyers returned to the market after updating the support of 1.2708, which I talked about in more detail in the morning forecast. Good data on the growth of the UK economy helped the pound to break through the resistance of 1.2798 and as long as trade is conducted over this range, the demand will continue leading to an update of the maximum of 1.2868 and 1.2929, where I recommend taking profits. In the case of a return below the support level of 1.2798, you can take a closer look at purchases from the middle of the channel at 1.2753.

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

The bears are required to return to the level of 1.2798, which will lead to the closure of a number of long positions in the pound and a larger fall to the middle of the channel 1.2753, where I recommend taking profits. If GBP / USD continues to grow, short positions can be considered to rebound from the highs of 1.2868 and 1.2929.
