• GBP/USD reversed Thursday’s losses and hit new weekly high.
  • Technical outlook shows a breach of the 100-DMA and key resistance at 1.2631/34.Buyers aim for 1.2803 and YTD high at 1.2894, while a dip below 1.2630 could expose 1.2500 and 200-DMA at 1.2539.

The British Pound registers gains of 0.21% against the US Dollar, although higher US Treasury yields failed to underpin the Greenback. At the time of writing, the GBP/USD pair trades at 1.2703 after bouncing off a daily low of 1.2644.

GBP/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The GBP/USD has decisively breached the confluence of the 100-day moving average (DMA) and the May 3 high of 1.2631/34, which exacerbated the rally toward the 1.2690ish region. However, it remains shy of reclaiming the psychological 1.2700, which, once done, would pave the way to challenging the year-to-date (YTD) high.

If the buyers manage to reclaim 1.2700, the next key levels to watch out for would be the March 21 high of 1.2803, followed by the YTD high at 1.2894.

Conversely, sellers would have the upper hand if GBP/USD dives beneath 1.2630. That will immediately expose 1.2500, with the 200-DMA up next at 1.2539.
