GBP/USD failed to make a valid breakdown below the 1.3673 level invalidating a further decline. The upside breakout from the down channel signaled that the pair will be expected to resume its major uptrend.

As you can see on the H4 chart, GBP/USD has failed to stay below the red uptrend line, so further growth is natural. Now is pressuring 1.3998 static resistance. Jumping and stabilizing above it could validate more gains.

GBP/USD Outlook!

The aggressive breakout through 1.3918 former high represented a long opportunity. Consolidating above 1.3998 static resistance could bring a new buying opportunity with an important upside target at 1.42.
