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

GBPUSD on Friday rose 0.3% to 1.27360. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2024-05-24, the pair rose 0.28% or 36 pips higher.

Looking ahead on Monday, GBPUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.26753.

As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 1.27732 (WR1) with break above could target 1.28103 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 1.26753 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 1.27614 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of May, GBPUSD is up by 1.94% or 242.2 pips higher.
