GBP/USD H1 Chart

Having broken through the important short-term resistance level 1.1922 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart) at the beginning of today's European session, GBP/USD has come close to the psychologically significant resistance level 1.2000.

GBP/USD H4 Chart

If this milestone is passed, then the growth of GBP/USD may continue up to the resistance levels 1.2151 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 1.2200, 1.2260 (EMA50 on the daily chart). Higher is unlikely, given the bearish momentum that forced the GBP/USD to hit more than a 2-year low (since April 2020) at 1.1760 last week.

GBP/USD D Chart

In the main scenario, we expect a resumption of decline either near the local resistance level 1.2000, or near the marks 1.2075, 1.2100, 1.2150. A confirmation signal will be a breakdown of the support level 1.1922.
