GBP/USD’s rebound from 1.3711 extended higher last week and break of 1.4144 resistance affirmed the bullish case. That is, pull back from 1.4345 has completed at 1.3711 already. Further rise is expected this week for retesting 1.4345 first. Break there will resume larger up trend and target 61.8% projection of 1.3038 to 1.4345 from 1.3711 at 1.4519 next. Nonetheless, break of 1.3982 will argue that rebound from 1.3711 has completed. And, intraday bias will be turned back to the downside for 1.3711 support and possibly below, to extend the corrective pattern from 1.4345.
In the bigger picture, as long as 1.3038 support holds, medium term outlook in GBP/USD will remains bullish. Rise from 1.1946 is at least correcting the long term down from 2007 high at 2.1161. Further rally would be seen back to 38.2% retracement of 2.1161 (2007 high) to 1.1946 (2016 low) at 1.5466. However, GBP/USD fails to sustain above 55 month EMA (now at 1.4259) so far. Break of 1.3038 support, will suggest that rise from 1.1946 has completed and will turn outlook bearish for retesting this low.
In the longer term picture, rise from 1.1946 should at least be correcting the whole long term down trend form 2.1161 and should target 38.2% retracement of 2.1161 (2007 high) to 1.1946 (2016 low) at 1.5466. It too early to tell if it’s developing into a long term up trend. We’ll monitor the upside momentum and reaction to 1.5466 to decide later.
