GBP/USD peaked today at 1.3868 high, 5 pips higher than yesterday's, still flirting with 5-EMA level with a daily downtrend. At the moment, the pair is trading 1.3850 intraday, challenging the blue resistance line on chart which keeps GBP bulls capped below and pushing prices lower. In case of further dips, the first target will be set on 50-EMA level located at 1.3740-30, coinciding with the falling wedge boundary. In case the pair pops to 1.3900 or closes above 1.3950 at H4 time frame, then the bear view will be negated and expectations will be for upside action.
As for fundamentals, GBP/USD awaits UK January CPI report with expectations for no change at 3% or it could fall behind at 2.9% which can be considered a neutral outcome. In case of a positive deviation scoring 3.1%, or 3.2%, combined global inflation ticking, we might see the market caught off guard and demand for the pound will increase.
