The GBP/USD pair’s U-turn from 23.6% Fibonacci retracement flashes 1.2630 as a quote while heading into the London open on Tuesday.

The pair now aims for monthly tops nearing 1.2710 whereas June month high nearing 1.2785 and April lows close to 1.2920 will gain bulls’ attention afterward.

However, overbought conditions of 14-bar Relative Strength Index (RSI) seem to favor pair’s another pullback towards 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of 1.2530 prior to highlighting 38.2% Fibonacci retracement figure of 1.2420 for bears.
