From its highest level this week, GBP/USD has fallen back to the minimum in the 1.4015 area, this level represents a key and psychological level for traders, because below this there could be a fall to 1.37. As long as the price trades above that key point, we expect GBP/USD to strengthen.

On the contrary, as long as it remains above 1.4000, there on the 1-hour chart, the 200 EMA is located, which also offers dynamic support to the pair, therefore a rebound in this area of the moving average could give it a good upward momentum and a good opportunity to buy.

Our recommendation is to buy if GBP/USD bounces in the 1.40 region, or breaks above 1.4050 with targets at 1.4111 for the next few hours. In case of a daily close below 1.40 we should avoid buying and close any bullish position.
