  • The GBP/USD main trend is taking a breather as bulls are pushing the currency pair to a two-day high.  
  • The bulls are having a  breakout above 1.2723 key level. The 50-period simple moving average crossed above the 200 SMA suggesting a slightly bullish bias. Targets to the upside are located near 1.2789 and 1.2838, August 10 high.  
  • A bear breakout below 1.2723 would invalidate the short-term bullish bias.
