During the quote’s sustained rise past-1.3750, April 2018 low near 1.3965 will be the key for GBP/USD bulls.

Following that, 1.3520 and the monthly low near 1.3450 should gain the market’s attention.

Overall, GBP/USD is an uptrend towards the early 2018 highs and the latest bounce off the key moving average strengthens the upside expectations.
