Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair
GBP/USD rallied, thanks to the buy signal that coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. Such allowed bullish traders to take long positions, provoking a 60-pip increase in the pair. No other signal appeared for the rest of the day.
It was the latest Bank of England minutes that pushed pound up, coupled with weak data on the US labor market.
Today, a report on UK GDP will be published, which may push pound above local highs. But by afternoon, the market will turn calm amid a US holiday. Many markets will close by then.

Important: Novice traders need to be very careful when making decisions about entering the market. Before the release of important reports, it is best to stay out of the market to avoid being caught in sharp fluctuations in the rate. If you decide to trade during the release of news, then always place stop orders to minimize losses. Without placing stop orders, you can very quickly lose your entire deposit, especially if you do not use money management and trade large volumes.
And remember that for successful trading, you need to have a clear trading plan. Spontaneous trading decisions based on the current market situation is an inherently losing strategy for an intraday trader.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
