What can we expect from GBPUSD for the new week and what happened on Friday?

GBPUSD on Friday rose 0.07% to 1.27410. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2024-05-31, the pair rose 0.04% or 5 pips higher.

Looking ahead on Monday, GBPUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.26805.

For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 1.28007 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.27407. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.26805 or 1.26808 (WS1) as immediate support level. GBPUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 1.28007 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of May, GBPUSD is up by 1.98% or 247.2 pips higher.
