GBP/USD fails to surge above 1.3320

<img class=" wp-image-2007 aligncenter" src="" alt="" width="661" height="463" />Although the US data release, in general, appeared to be worse than expected, the upside momentum was not strong enough to push the pair above the monthly PP at 1.3322.

The presence of a recently formed ascending channel whose bottom boundary is backed up by the rising 55-, 100-, 200-hour SMAs suggests that the currency rate most probably is going to break through that resistance and continue to move to the north.

On the other hand, there are two large unconfirmed channels who boundaries are located near the 1.3330 mark and that might turnaround the pair.

Finally, there is a need to take into account that this week will be full of the UK data releases, including inflation and retail sales, that are expected to have a notable impact on further direction of the pair.
