GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2892; (P) 1.2923; (R1) 1.2960; More…

GBP/USD is staying in range above 1.2849 and intraday bias remains neutral first. Overall, consolidation from 1.3514 is still in progress and further decline is in favor 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. However, break of 1.3069 will turn bias to the upside for 1.3209 resistance.

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.
