Other than the fundamental optimism, the pair’s successful trading above 100-bar SMA and bullish MACD also helps the Sterling buyers to probe a falling trend line from December 17, at 1.3565 now.

Should the GBP/USD buyers manage to cross the 1.3565 hurdle, the 1.3600 can offer an intermediate halt before challenging the monthly high near 1.3625.

Alternatively, a pullback from the current levels can revisit the 1.3500 round-figure and the recent lows near 1.3465. Though, an ascending trend line from Monday and 100-bar SMA, respectively around 1.3420 and 1.3400, will challenge the GBP/USD sellers afterward.

In a case where the quote drops below 1.3400, the weekly bottom around 1.3188 will lure the GBP/USD bears.
