The British currency returned to the moving average line, having failed to update the previous local maximum, and tends to resume the downward trend again. We remind you that tomorrow, it will be known who won the elections in the UK, Boris Johnson or Jeremy Hunt. Meanwhile, we have already written that the British Parliament hedged in case Johnson wins and wants to suspend the work of Parliament to carry out Brexit "without a deal" without the participation of Parliament. Since there is no consensus among parliamentarians on the question "how to leave the EU?" (and this is three years after the decision on the "divorce" was made), then to address this issue, we can connect Elizabeth II, who for 67 years of her reign has never solved political issues. Members of the Conservative Party fear that Boris Johnson will nevertheless turn Brexit "without a deal", which will be destructive to the country's economy, so they want to give the Queen the right to make political decisions. Thus, interested Tories will appeal to the Queen with a request to discuss with the European Union another Brexit deferment, which Brussels is ready to provide. This unprecedented case can put a fat cross on Boris Johnson's desires to leave the EU on October 31. By the way, Johnson is not yet the Prime Minister of Great Britain. Technically, the pound threatens to go below the moving again. It is impossible to predict what the market reaction will be to the election results, therefore, greater caution is recommended today and tomorrow, as it is possible to increase volatility and sharp price reversals.

Nearest support levels:

Nearest resistance levels:

R1 – 1.2512

R2 – 1.2543

R3 – 1.2573

Trading recommendations:

The GBP/USD pair has adjusted to the moving average. Thus, now, it is recommended to wait for the rebound from the moving and buy the pair again, but in very small lots, since both channels are directed downwards, with the goals of 1.2543 and 1.2573.

It will be possible to sell the pound/dollar pair with the goals of 1.2451 and 1.2421 not earlier than fixing the price below the moving average line. In this case, the bears will take the initiative again.

In addition to the technical picture should also take into account the fundamental data and the time of their release.
