GBP/USD Price Forecast – British pound continues to fightThe British pound continues to fight back and forth against the US dollar as we have seen the lot of choppiness around the 1.2250 level. This is an area that was important in the past, so it should not be a huge surprise that it comes into play now. Looking at this chart, it looks as if we are trying to build up enough inertia to make the next big move.
The British pound continues to show signs of choppiness right around the 1.2250 level, an area that has been supported and resistance in the past. Quite frankly, this is a very choppy and noisy market right now, so it is a bit difficult to deal with. Most of what you are seeing as far as choppiness is due to the fact that Brexit continues to be a major issue. Beyond that, the market is set up technically for a move lower although the last couple of candlesticks are fighting that trend. If the market does break down below the bottom of the Tuesday session, then the “trapdoor” could open up and send this market much lower, perhaps down to the 1.20 level which was a large, round, psychologically significant figure.

To the upside, we have the 50 day EMA which could cause a lot of resistance, so it’s not until we break above that level that the market would be free to go looking towards the next major resistance barrier, the 1.25 handle. All things being equal, this is a market that should continue to be very choppy and noisy, and of course a sudden headline could send this market rocketing in one direction or the other. Because of this, you should keep your position size rather small when trading the British pound against anything.
