GBP / USD: plan for the European session on January 25. The pound continues to strengthen the position on the expectations

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

The Brexit news is over, but many players are putting on a postponement for the UK to leave the EU, which will allow the pound to gradually strengthen its position. The next signal for continued growth will be the breakdown and consolidation above the resistance of 1.3133, which will lead to a test of new monthly highs around 1.3186 and 1.3233, where I recommend fixing the profits. In the case of GBP / USD decline in the first half of the day, long positions can be viewed at a false breakdown in the area of 1.3074 or at a rebound from the support of 1.3013.

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

Only another unsuccessful fixing above the resistance of 1.3133 will be the first signal to open short positions on the pound with the main goal of breaking and fixing below the area of 1.3074, which will lead to a larger GBP / USD sale to yesterday's support area of 1.3013, where I recommend fixing the profits. When scenarios for further growth, against the background of news on Brexit, consider short positions after updating the highs of 1.3186 and 1.3233.
