GBP/USD

The upward wave of the British currency from May 31 has no reversal potential and acts as a correction of the previous section of the main trend from May 3. The structure of the wave is not showing completeness. Since June 7, the pound quotes form the middle part (B) of the structure, which lacks the final fragment.

Forecast:

Today, in the first half of the day, an upward movement vector is expected. In the area of the resistance zone, the probability of a change of course and the beginning of a price decline will increase sharply.

Recommendations:

The pair’s purchases can be claimed at the end of the day after the price moves down. Due to the high probability of counter-rollbacks, pound sales carry a high degree of risk. The best solution is to refrain from trading during the correction and look for the entry signals to long positions at its end.

Resistance zone:

– 1.2750/1.2780

Support zone:

– 1.2680/1.2650
