GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2997; (P) 1.3057; (R1) 1.3145; More….

No change in GBP/USD’s outlook and intraday bias stays on the upside. Corrective fall from 1.3514 could have completed at 1.2905, after drawing support from 38.2% retracement of 1.1958 to 1.3514 at 1.2920. Further rise would be seen back to retest 1.3514 high. On the downside, sustained trading below 1.2920 will pave the way to 61.8% retracement at 1.2552.

In the bigger picture, rise from 1.1958 medium term bottom expected to extend higher to retest 1.4376 key resistance. Reactions from there would decide whether it’s in consolidation from 1.1946 (2016 low). Or, firm break of 1.4376 will indicate long term bullish reversal. In any case, for now, outlook will stay bullish as long as 1.2582 resistance turned support holds.
