      The U.S. Dollar Index has managed to settle below the support at the 93 level and is moving lower. The next support level for the U.S. Dollar Index is located at 92.70. If the U.S. Dollar Index gets to the test of this level, GBP/USD will get additional support.

      GBP/USD managed to get above the 20 EMA at 1.3830 and is moving towards the next resistance level which is located at 1.3865. RSI is in the moderate territory, and there is plenty of room to gain additional momentum in case the right catalysts emerge.

      In case GBP/USD settles above the resistance at 1.3865, it will head towards the next resistance at 1.3900. A move above the resistance at 1.3900 will open the way to the test of the resistance at 1.3950. There are no material levels between 1.3900 and 1.3950 so this move may be fast.

      On the support side, the previous resistance at the 20 EMA at 1.3830 will likely serve as the first support level for GBP/USD. The next support is located at the 50 EMA at 1.3820. In case GBP/USD declines below the 50 EMA, it will head towards the support at 1.3800. A successful test of the support at 1.3800 will push GBP/USD towards the support at 1.3780.
