GBP/USD: plan for the European session on January 10. The situation with the British pound is becoming more and more difficult

To open long positions on GBP/USD, it is required:

There is no news on Brexit, as there is no movement in the GBP/USD pair. While trading is above the support of 1.2753, buyers of the British pound still have a chance to continue the upward trend, but this requires a breakout and consolidation above the resistance of 1.2798, which will open the way to new monthly highs in the area of 1.2868 and 1.2929, where I recommend taking profit. In the event of a decrease below the support level of 1.2753, it is best to consider long positions on the rebound from the lows of 1.2708 and 1.2658.

To open short positions on GBP/USD, it is required:

Only an unsuccessful consolidation above the resistance of 1.2798 with a return to this level or a breakdown of the support of 1.2753 will lead to a larger sale of GBP/USD with a test of lows in the area of 1.2708 and 1.2658, where I recommend taking profit. Positive news on Brexit from the British Parliament may lead to a sharp increase in the pound. In this scenario, you can open short positions after updating the highs of 1.2868 and 1.2929.
