GBP/USD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3912; (P) 1.3959; (R1) 1.3997 More….

GBP/USD is staying in very tight range and intraday bias remains neutral first. As long as 1.3828 support holds, further rally is expected. On the upside, above 1.3998 minor resistance will turn bias to the upside for retesting 1.4240 high first. Break there will extend the up trend from 1.1409 to 1.4376 long term resistance and then 100% projection of 1.1409 to 1.3482 from 1.2675 at 1.4748. However, firm break of 1.3828 will bring deeper correction to 1.2675/3482 support zone.

In the bigger picture, rise from 1.1409 medium term bottom is in progress. Further rally would be seen to 1.4376 resistance and above. Decisive break there will carry larger bullish implications and target 38.2% retracement of 2.1161 (2007 high) to 1.1409 (2020 low) at 1.5134. On the downside, break of 1.3482 resistance turned support is needed to be first indication of completion of the rise. Otherwise, outlook will stay cautiously bullish even in case of deep pullback.
