GBP/USD - Bouncing
GBP/USD is bouncing, as can be seen by the break of the initial resistance at 1.6052 (previous support). However, a break of the resistance at 1.6176 (intraday high) is needed to improve the short-term technical structure. Another resistance stands at 1.6287. Hourly supports can be found at 1.6027 (intraday low) and 1.5944.
In the longer term, the collapse in prices after having reached 4-year highs has created a strong resistance at 1.7192, which is unlikely to be broken in the coming months. Despite the current short-term bearish momentum, we favour a temporary rebound near the support at 1.5855 (12/11/2013 low). A resistance lies at 1.6525.
