GBP/USD is poised for new highs
The GBP/USD is bullish. We should see an uptrend continuation from 1-2-3 pattern after a retracement.
If the retracement happens watch out for 78.6-88.6 POC zone. 1.3990-1.4005 is the zone where the price might be rejected from. A bounce could also happen above 1.4100. In both cases 1.4140 is the target. The pair is still in uptrend and buying the dips is the way to go.
GBP/USD breaks above 1.4100 after Powell’s comments, fresh multi-year high
The GBP/USD rebounded sharply after the first comments from Jerome Powell and climbed to 1.4113, reaching the highest level since 2018. The move higher took place amid a decline of the US dollar.
Fed’s Powell mentioned that the economy is a long way from employment and inflation goals. He offered so fur no surprises in its semi-annual presentation at the Congress. The central bank continues to promise to maintain rates near zero for a long time until full employment and inflation exceeds 2% for some time.
