GBP/USD Technical Analysis – Prices broke above resistance at 1.5171, a barrier marked the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and reinforced by a rising trend line set from mid-March. Buyers now aim to challenge the 50% level at 1.5281, with a push beyond that aiming for the 61.8% Fib at 1.5392. The 1.5171 mark has been recast as near-term support. A reversal back beneath that eyes the 23.6% retracement at 1.5034.
