GBPUSD Technical Analysis – A Potential Rise to 1.26

From a technical standpoint, for the uptrend to resume, the pound sterling must close and stabilize itself above 1.259 against the U.S. dollar. If this scenario comes into play, the wave that started from 1.24 will likely expand to 1.266, followed by the upper band of the bullish flag.

The Bearish Scenario

On the flip side, if the buyers fail to surpass the 1.259 key resistance ceiling, the price will likely decline to 38.2% Fibonacci, followed by the lower band of the bullish flag.

Notably, if the bearish scenario comes into play and the GBP/USD price dips to the bottom of the bullish flag, this 1.25 mark offers a decent bid for the buyers to rejoin the market. Therefore, analysts at FxNews suggest meticulously monitoring the 1.250 key levels.
