What can we expect from GBPUSD today?

GBPUSD on Wednesday rose 0.21% to 1.27314. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising.

Updated daily direction for GBPUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 1.26935 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 1.27617 or trades above daily pivot 1.27276. Break above could target R1 at 1.27655. While to the downside, we are looking at 1.26935 (S1) and daily low of 1.26897 as support levels. GBPUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 1.27617 may suggest continuation after recent positive movement.
