Short-Term GBPUSD Chart Supports Higher Prices
Cable crossed back above all three moving averages on Friday and is currently trading just off its best level of the week, despite US dollar strength. The pair also traded back above the 23.60% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.3067, although a close above this level would give the move more validity, while the uptrend remains intact and supportive. To keep the trend intact, the pair need to take out this Monday’s high at 1.31175, which should leave a short-term target at 1.32178 ahead of 1.32986.
