GBP/USD touched 1.7173. Is this the limit?

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD resumed growth after a short period of consolidation during late Asian hours; the pair aims at multi-year highs of 1.7177 reached on Wednesday, and the 1.7180 resistance

Higher and higher

GBP/USD has been rangebound after a positive start of the week, but it seems that bulls have had enough rest and ready for a new assault as the pair took off from the opening level of 1.7150 and touched current Asian high at 1.7173. This is a pure technical play, as there are no fundamental factors that might have served as a trigger. GBP/USD is dangerously close to the important long-term resistance area of 1.7180. It is not going to be taken out easily, but sustained weekly close above this level might open up new horizons for long-term GBP bulls.

What are today’s key GBP/USD levels?
