GBP/USD – how to rise on empty calendar

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD shows gradual recovery from open levels reaching 1.6793 by the moment.


The pair is trying to find some arguments to recover at least part of the loses it incurred during the recent month. Weather the 1.6780 area is strong enough to trigger the turnaround remains to be seen, however, the scheduled for the week ahead key reports may help the pair to rise from its knees. For the moment, the 1.68 resistance area may become the minor barrier on the way to the nearest resistance at 1.6817, and on the back of Monday’s empty economic calendar the chances for the breakout are not very high.

What are today’s key GBP/USD levels?
