GBP / USD plan for the American session on February 6. Divergence worked on the buyers side of the pound

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

The formation of the divergence, which I drew attention to in my morning review, led to a return in demand for the British pound and consolidating above 1.2950 support, which may strengthen the upward correction in the afternoon. The main objective of the bulls is to break through the resistance level of 1.2992, just above which the upper limit of the current downward channel passes. In the case of a repeated decline of the pound to the support area of 1.2931, from there it is best to return to long positions only on a false breakdown or on a rebound from a new minimum of 1.2883.

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

The bears could not continue the downward trend in the pound in the first half of the day, which led to the closure of a number of short positions and a slight upward rebound of the GBP/USD pair. At the moment, short positions can return to a false breakdown in the area of large resistance at 1.2992, where the 50-day moving average is located, or to rebound from a maximum of 1.3048. The main task of the sellers will be a repeated test of the support area 1.2931 and a breakout will open a direct road to the area of new weekly lows of 1.2883 and 1.2833, where I recommend taking profits.
