Technical Analysis of GBP/USD for August 6, 2020:

Technical Market Outlook:

After the bulls had broken through the short-term trend line resistance located around the level of 1.3080, the GBP/USD pair moved higher towards the recent swing high that was made at the level of 1.3169. Any clear violation of this level will lead to another wave up towards the next target seen at the level of 1.3199 and 1.3282. On the other hand, only a sustained breakout below the level of 1.2980 would change the short-term market sentiment and deepen the correction towards the level of 1.2869.
