GBPUSD gained buyer’s attention after snapping a four-week downtrend the last week. Adding strength to the upside bias is the Cable pair’s confirmation of the descending triangle bullish chart pattern. However, a clear upside break of the stated triangle’s upper line, close to 1.2740 by the press time, as well as successful trading beyond the 200-SMA hurdle of 1.2830 becomes necessary for the Pound Sterling bulls to retake control. Following that, the late July swing high of around the 1.3000 psychological magnet will act as a buffer during an expected ride towards challenging the yearly top marked the last month near 1.3145.
On the contrary, multiple supports around 1.2700 and 1.2650 restrict the short-term downside of the GBPUSD pair. However, the Cable’s bearish bias remains elusive unless witnessing a clear break of the previously stated triangle’s bottom line, close to 1.2625 by the press time. It’s worth noting that the Pound Sterling’s sustained weakness beneath 1.2625 may seek confirmation from the late June swing low of around 1.2590 before targeting May’s bottom of 1.2310.
Overall, GBPUSD lures buyers but the upside needs validation from 1.2830.
