GBP/USD: plan for the European session on July 5. Pound is waiting for news on Brexit and US labor market data

To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:

Pound buyers will count on a false breakdown in the support area of 1.2555, which will be the first signal to open long positions. However, the main task is to return to a resistance of 1.2596, which will lead to a larger upward correction in the area of 1.2639, where I recommend taking profits in the first half of the day. In case of a decline scenario below a support of 1.2555, it is best to look at long positions for a rebound from a low of 1.2513.

To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

Bears need a break of support at 1.2555, which will increase the pressure on the pair and will lead to updating lows of 1.2513 and 1.2483, where I recommend taking profits. Failing to consolidate above a resistance of 1.2596 will also be a good signal to open short positions. With growth above this range, you can sell for a rebound from a high of 1.2639.
