    Our opinion

    On the daily and weekly charts the indicators OsMA and Stochastic give signals for opening buy positions, while on 4-hour and monthly chart signals of the indicators are in favor of the long positions.

    Some important European and American news is scheduled for the release today; however, it is likely that the pair GBP/USD will remain at the level of 1.4740 until the announcement of the results of the referendum.

    It is expected that tomorrow the pair GBP/USD can soar up if the country votes for staying in the EU or sink down in case of the exit from the EU.
