GBP/USD Technical Analysis: bulls looking for one more run at 1.33

  • The GBP/USD is trapped in a tight range heading into Friday's London market session after seeing firm gains through Thursday's trading action, busting through the 1.3200 technical level as broader markets recover from recent trade war angst.
  • The economic calendar is on the lean side for Friday, and buyers will be looking to see if the recent bullish moves are able to sustain themselves long enough to make a play for the 1.33 level before the week wraps up, though the 200-day EMA currently parked near 1.33 will be giving any further upside action a run for the money.
