GBP/USD recovers notably today but stays in range of 1.2954/3118. Intraday bias remains neutral first. On the downside, sustained break of 38.2% retracement of 1.1958 to 1.3514 at 1.2920 will resume the corrective fall from 1.3514. Next target will be 61.8% retracement at 1.2552. On the upside, above 1.3118 will turn bias to the upside for 1.3284 resistance.

In the bigger picture, rise from 1.1958 medium term bottom is 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.
