Overview:

  • The GBP/USD pair set above strong support at the level of 1.3758, which coincides with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. This support has been rejected for four times confirming uptrend veracity. Thus, major support is seen at the level of 1.3758 because the trend is still showing strength above it. Accordingly, the pair is still in the uptrend from the area of 1.3758 and 1.3840. The GBP/USD pair is trading in a bullish trend from the first support line of 1.3840 towards the first resistance level at 1.3944 in order to test it. This is confirmed by the RSI indicator signaling that we are still in the bullish trending market. Now, the pair is likely to begin an ascending movement to the point of 1.3944 and further to the level of 1.3939. At the same time, if a breakout happens at the support levels of 1.3840, then this scenario may be invalidated. But in overall, we still prefer the bullish scenario.
