      Yesterday, the U.S. Dollar Index made an attempt to settle below the support at the 93 level but failed to develop sufficient downside momentum. Currently, the U.S. Dollar Index managed to get back above the resistance at 93.20 and is moving towards the next resistance level at 93.40. In case the U.S. Dollar Index settles above this level, it will gain additional upside momentum which will be bearish for GBP/USD.

      Today, foreign exchange market traders will have a chance to take a look at the final reading of UK Manufacturing PMI report for March. Analysts expect that Manufacturing PMI increased from 55.1 to 57.9. In the U.S., Manufacturing PMI is projected to grow from 58.6 to 59.

      Traders will also keep an eye on the developments in the U.S. government bond markets after U.S. President Joe Biden unveiled his $2 trillion infrastructure plan. At this point, Treasury yields are moving lower, but the U.S. dollar remains strong.

      On the upside, the nearest resistance level for GBP/USD is located at 1.3780. This resistance level has been tested during the current trading session and proved its strength.

      If GBP/USD settles above the resistance at 1.3780, it will get to the test of the next resistance at 1.3800. A move above 1.3800 will push GBP/USD towards the resistance at the 50 EMA at 1.3815.
