The British pound has moved above the 1.4200 level against the greenback, as expectations of a May rate hike from the Bank of England, and a weaker U.S dollar index drive the pair higher. The GBPUSD is currently holding price-action above the 1.4200 level, with the former weekly price-high, at 1.4220, the next key upside hurdle. Once clearly above the 1.4220 level, sterling buyers will meet strong technical resistance from the pairs key 200-week moving average, located at the 1.4255 level.
The GBPUSD pair is strongly bullish whilst trading above the 1.4220 level, key technical resistance is found at the 1.4255 and 1.4279 levels.
Should GBPUSD buyers fail to gain traction above the 1.4200 level, key intraday support is located at the 1.4146 and 1.4087 levels.
