GBP/USD: Technical analysis

The strength of resistance at 1.6260/70 triggered a sideways consolidation, as expected previously. The price remained within the range 1.6270- 1.6140/50. Trading is currently carried out at 1.6170/80. Indicators suggest further sideways movement within the range. Target level 1.6330/00 test is still a possibility. At the same time, MACD divergence indicates that a large-scale pullback is about to commence. The first signal for that will be received when the trades hold below support level 1.6140/30, which means that revised uptrend line (red line) will be breached as well.
