GBP/USD Price Analysis:  Technical outlook

From a technical standpoint, the GBP/USD is neutral-biased, though tilted to the downside. It remains below the key 200-day moving average (DMA) at 1.2555, which delineates an asset’s bullishness or bearishness. However, buyers are gathering momentum as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) punches above the 50-midline level.

With that context, if buyers achieve a daily close above the 200-DMA, that will expose the 1.2600 figure. Further upside is seen past the 50-DMA at 1.2621, followed by the 100-DMA at 1.2645. Once those levels are surpassed, the 1.2700 mark is up next.

Conversely, failure at the 200-DMA adds pressure on Sterling, which could drag the GBP/USD exchange rate beneath the 1.2500 mark. A breach of the latter will expose the April 24 low at 1.2422, followed by the April 22 low at 1.2299.
