From: Daily Forex
The GBP/USD will go into this week of trading near the 1.23775 level, which is a good polite distance away from lows that were seen last Monday when the currency pair hit the 1.20900 vicinity. Solid and durable support equilibrium last week was technically efficient, and the price of GBP/USD incrementally gained on Tuesday, late Wednesday, and Thursday and then surged higher on Friday. Yes, reversals lower for the GBP/USD certainly occurred, but speculators who were fortunate enough to be buyers may have produced a rather profitable week.
