GBP/USD: technical analysis 31.12.19
The GBP/USD pair begins today’s trading with a slight bullish bias. At the moment the price has met the resistance at the level of 1.31354. The instrument has the potential for upward movement, but the downward correction is not excluded. If the "bulls" manage to raise the rate above the level of 1.31360, the upward movement can continue to the area of 1.31496, 1.31836. The area of 1.31836 will be a key bullish target, that can prevent the instrument from growing, as the possibility of the reverse of the price is high there.
The downward rebound from 1.31354 and pullback below 1.31287 will be a sign of downward correction and give a prospect of decline to 1.30855-1.30615 support.
