GBP / USD: plan for the European session on September 17. Buyers of the pound still early to panic
To open long positions for GBP / USD, you need:
Buyers of the pound need an urgent return to the resistance level of 1.3103, which will lead to the construction of a new larger wave of growth with the expectation of a test and breakdown of the maximum at 1.3141, above which levels of 1.3214 and 1.3263 open, where I recommend fixing the profits. Even if in the first half of the day, the GBP / USD falls below the support at 1.3070, there is no need to panic to the buyers of the pound. In the area of 1.3026 and 1.2981, a new lower limit of the upward price channel can be built, from which I recommend to gain long positions.
To open short positions for GBP / USD, you need:
Sellers will try to form a false breakout in the area of intermediate resistance of 1.3101, which will be the first signal for the opening of short positions with the expectation of a decline and the breakdown of support at 1.3070, from which the pressure on the pound will increase, which will lead to the lows of 1.3026 and 1.2981, where I recommend fixing the profits. In the case of growth above 1.3103, short positions can be returned to a rebound from the weekly high of 1.3141.
The 30-day moving average tries to punch down the 50-day moving average, which will form a short-term signal for the sale of the pound.
