GBP/USD Corrective?

GBP/USD has been drifting higher on the previous sessions to reach the 55 day ma and has now been unable to clear 1.5346 resistance.

The pair have now tested the July highs and breached what marked a psychological resistance area. The RSI on the pair have moved into overbought territory and strength indicators signal that further moves t the upside would be limited. 1.5397 marks higher target ahead of 1.5436.
