GBP/USD: plan for the European session on May 15. Bears are approaching an important support level of 1.2870

To open long positions on GBP / USD you need:

In order to stop a downward trend, buyers of the pound require a return and consolidation above the level of 1.2930, which they lost yesterday in the afternoon after a slight upward correction, which was formed due to the divergence on the MACD indicator. Only above the 1.2930 range would we be able to expect a more substantial demand for the pound, which will lead to an update of highs of 1.2983 and 1.3037, where I recommend taking profits. In case the GBP/USD drops further, it is best to look at long positions for a rebound from a low of 1.2877-70. To open short positions on GBP/USD you need:

The lack of news on Brexit and disagreements between the UK parties are increasing the pressure on the pound. The goal of sellers today is to form a false breakdown in the resistance area of 1.2930, which will be the first signal to open short positions that could easily lead GBP/USD to the area of lows of 1.2870 and 1.2812, where I recommend taking profits. In case the pound rises above the resistance of 1.2930, short positions can be considered to rebound from a high of 1.2983.
