Intraday bias in GBP/USD remains neutral and outlook is unchanged. It’s staying in consolidation from 1.3514. On the upside, above 1.3174 will target 1.3284 resistance first. Break will target a test on 1.3514 high. On the downside, below 1.3034 will bring retest of 38.2% retracement of 1.1958 to 1.3514 at 1.2920.

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.
