GBP/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that direction looked very uncertain due to political instability in the U.K. as well as the fact that the price was in the middle of a very wide zone between any key support and resistance. This is still true, but it looks as though there is minor support confluent at the round number of 1.3200 where we have seen some buying, so over the very short term the price could move up from here. However, it still looks generally very uncertain, so this currency pair is probably best avoided for the time being, with better opportunities likely to be found in the EUR/USD or USD/JPY currency pairs today. GBPUSD

There is nothing due today concerning the GBP. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of CPI data at 1:30pm London time.
