GBP/USD: plan for the European session on November 28. The pound found strength and resumed growth amid new polls

To open long positions on GBP/USD you need:

The British pound began to actively strengthen its position against the US dollar following news that the Conservative Party of Great Britain could win the election on December 12 this year by a good margin. Buyers managed to break above a number of resistances and at the moment, the main task is to maintain support at 1.2921, which is currently being traded. The formation of a false breakout at this level in the first half of the day will lead to further growth of GBP/USD to the highs of 1.2966 and 1.3017, where I recommend profit taking. Given that important data for the UK are not coming out today, the focus will continue on election news. In the event that the pair falls below the 1.2921 support, it is best to return to long positions to rebound from the 1.2888 area, or immediately buy the pound after a test of a low of 1.2845.

To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

Sellers have serious problems, as the hope of a continued downward correction has evaporated along with yesterday's growth of the pound. At the moment, an important task will be the return and consolidation under the support of 1.2921, which may push the pound lower to the area of 1.2888, where I recommend profit taking, as in this range the bulls will try to build the lower boundary of the new rising channel. If the demand for GBP/USD persists in the morning, then it is best to count on sales only after a false breakout has formed in the support area of 1.2966, and you can open short positions immediately for a rebound from a high of 1.3017.
