BUY 1.2275; TP1 1.2335; TP2 1.2360; SL 1.2260

The British pound has found some grounds versus the greenback during the last two weeks. Firstly it formed a “harami” pattern near the support line on W1, then the pattern was confirmed by another bullish weekly candlestick. Yesterday GBP/USD found the support of the weekly pivot point at 1.2213. As long as the pair remains above this point, it has a chance to test higher levels. The declining 200-period MA on H4 at 1.2270 looks like an obstacle for buyers, but a break above this level will open the way up to 1.2335 (23.6% Fibo of the March-August decline) and 1.2362 (first weekly pivot resistance). On the other hand, if the pair turns down from 1.2270, it will mean a short-term top. The decline below 1.2210 will make the pair slide to the support at 1.2170.
