GBP/USD - Bullish Breakout
GBP/USD has broken resistance at 1.2557 (04/11/2016 high) while hourly support is given at 1.2354 (09/11/2016 low). Strong resistance stands far away at 1.2771 (05/10/2016 high). The shortterm technical structure suggest further strengthening.
The long-term technical pattern is even more negative since the Brexit vote has paved the way for further decline. Long-term support given at 1.0520 (01/03/85) represents a decent target. Long-term resistance is given at 1.5018 (24/06/2015) and would indicate a long-term reversal in the negative trend. Yet, it is very unlikely at the moment.
