GBPUSD recovery hopes to stay valid beyond 1.2430

GBPUSD recovery hopes to stay valid beyond 1.2430

GBPUSD consolidates losses made in the last three consecutive weeks ahead of the UK’s employment report. Adding strength to the recovery momentum is the RSI (14) line’s rebound from the oversold territory, as well as a six-week-old falling wedge bullish chart formation, which in turn suggests an immediate run-up to cross the 1.2600 round figure. However, the upward trajectory needs validation from the stated wedge’s top line, close to 1.2640 by the press time, to highlight the theoretical target of around 1.3190. During the theoretical run-up, the 50-SMA level of around 1.2750, June’s high surrounding 1.2850 and the 1.3000 psychological magnet will act as intermediate halts.

Meanwhile, the 50.0% Fibonacci retracement of the pair’s March-July upside, near 1.2470, limits the immediate downside of the GBPUSD pair. That said, a convergence of the 200-SMA and the wedge’s bottom line, close to 1.2430, appears a tough nut to crack for the Cable pair sellers. It’s worth noting that a clear downside break of the 1.2430 support confluence won’t hesitate to quickly drag the Pound Sterling to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level surrounding 1.2315 before testing the mid-March swing high of around 1.2200.

Overall, GBPUSD buyers are in the driver’s seat ahead of the UK employment data.
