The Pound Sterling reverses its course against the US Dollar, after extending its gains past the 200-day moving average (DMA). However, data from the United States (US), showing that inflation could be picking up, as shown by the Employment Cost Index (ECI), bolstered the Greenback.

GBP/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The GBP/USD is neutral biased, though failure to cling above the 200-DMA at 1.2564 might open the door for a pullback, with traders eyeing a test of the November 14, 2023, high at 1.2506. In the event of a drop below that level, further downside is seen at the April 26 intermediate support at 1.2448, before the major plunges to the year-to-date (YTD) low of 1.2299.

On the other hand, if the pair edges above the 200-DMA that would pave the way for testing 1.2600. Once surpassed, key resistance levels emerge. The 50-DMA is up next at 1.2619, followed by the 100-DMA at 1.2645. Subsequent gains are seen above those levels, exacerbating a rally toward 1.2700.
