GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Cable facing resistance at 1.3250 post-US CPI

  • GBP/USD got a 40-pip knee-jerk reaction to the upside after the release of the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) which came in line with analyst expectations at 2.3% in June. 
  • GBP/USD is facing some resistance at 1.3250 and at the 200-period simple moving average as the bulls are trying to create a bull breakout in order to reclaim the 1.3300 figure. 
  • GBP/USD is currently retracing to the downside the US CPI news boost as the USD Dollar is slowly regaining strength. Bears need a breakout below 1.3200 while bulls need a breakout above 1.3300 in order to further confirm the directionality of the pair.
