Key quotes

“GBP/USD has rallied to the 78.6% retracement at 1.2818 (of the move down from the March peak), which has so far provoked failure. Given that we have a TD perfected set up on the daily chart, caution is warranted.” 

“Dips lower should find initial support at 1.2468/86 ahead of the short-term uptrend at 1.2363 which is expected to hold the downside.” 

“A daily chart close above the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2818 is needed to target the 200-week ma at 1.2924.”
