Today's main even is represented by the FOMC, GBP/USD could register sharp movements around this high impact event. Also, the US and UK's manufacturing and services data could bring more volatility.

GBP/USD Upside Reactivated!


Technically, GBP/USD is expected to advance higher after closing above the up channel's upside line and beyond the 1.3445 former high. The rate has finally managed to make a valid breakout above the warning line (wl3) and through the R1 (1.3419) confirming further growth.

It remains to see what will really happen after the FOMC Press Conference and FOMC Statement. Is hard to believe that the sentiment could change drastically. Stabilizing somewhere above 1.3480 and above the channel's upside line suggests buying.
