GBP/USD Price Analysis: Technical Perspective

The GBP/USD pair shows a neutral to slightly bullish outlook in the short term, having surpassed the 200-day moving average (DMA) at 1.2547. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has moved into bullish territory, suggesting potential for the pair to approach the 1.2600 level, just shy of the 50-DMA at 1.2609.

Breaking above the 50-DMA could lead to the pair testing the combined resistance at the May 3 high and the 100-DMA, around 1.2634/42. A further push could aim for the 1.2700 level.

Conversely, if the GBP/USD pair falls below the 200-DMA, it might signal a shift in control back to sellers. The initial support could be found at the 1.2500 mark, followed by the May 1 low at 1.2466. Breaking these levels might lead the pair toward 1.2400 and then the April 22 low at 1.2299.
