GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2843; (P) 1.2886; (R1) 1.2923; More…

Break of 1.2929 minor resistance suggests temporary bottoming at 1.2849. Intraday bias is turned neutral first. Further decline is expected as long as 1.3069 resistance holds. Break of 1.2849 will extend the corrective fall from 1.3514 to 50% retracement of 1.1958 to 1.3514 at 1.2736.

In the bigger picture, rise from 1.1958 medium term bottom is not completed yet despite current pull back form 1.3514. Such rally is expected to resume later to 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.
