Looking ahead on Monday, GBPUSD looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Friday trading session.
As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 1.23273 (WR1) with break above could target 1.24247 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 1.21650 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 1.23435 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.
For the month of March, GBPUSD is up by 1.75% or 210 pips higher.
