GBP/USD needs to clear the 1.2250 hurdle to extend its recovery

GBP/USD has stabilized above 1.22. The pair, however, faces stiff resistance at 1.2250 and it might find it difficult to gather bullish momentum in case that level stays intact, FXStreet’s Eren Sengezer reports.

Cable needs to clear 1.2250 to stretch recovery

“The University of Michigan's preliminary Consumer Sentiment Index for May will be featured in the US economic docket. If the upbeat market mood remains intact after this data, the US Dollar Index could extend its downward correction and help GBP/USD edge higher.”

“GBP/USD stays below the descending trend line coming from May 5, which forms the first resistance at 1.2250. The 20-period SMA is reinforcing that level as well. In case the pair rises above that hurdle and starts using it as support, it could target 1.23 (psychological level, static level) and 1.2350 (static level, 50-period SMA).”

“A four-hour close below 1.22 (psychological level, static level) could attract sellers and open the door for another leg lower toward 1.2150 (static level from May 2020) and 1.21 (May 15, 2020, low, psychological level).”
