GBP/USD: plan for the European session on June 10. Further movement of the pound depends on the data on GDP and industrial

To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:

Pound buyers are required to save the situation in the region of the lower boundary of the rising channel of 1.2700. Good data on the UK economy, with the formation of a false breakdown at this level, will be the first signal to open long positions based on the trend's continuation and the update of the highs of 1.2735 and 1.2765, where I recommend taking profits. Under the scenario of reducing the pound under the support of 1.2700, it is best to treat long positions with caution since the trend will be broken. Good support levels are seen at 1.2673 and 1.2644.

To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

Pound sellers will expect the formation of a false breakdown in the resistance area of 1.2735, and weak UK GDP data will push the pound below the support of 1.2700, which will lead to a big sale to 1.2673 and 1.2644, where I recommend taking profits. With growth above 1.2735, buyers can push GBP/USD in the area of last week's highs to 1.2765 and 1.2795, from where you can sell directly to a rebound.
