Technical outlook for GBP/USD

At 1.6341, technicians say that GBP/USD has begun to correct back below previous resistance at 1.6425. Next support comes in at 1.6296 (the first Fibonacci retracement line) and is backed up by the likeliest target at the 2nd Fibo line at 1.6250. The next projected resistance for the cross after this correction runds its course comes in at approximately 1.6600 – although the technicians say anything is possible when a breakout such as this occurs.
