GBP/USD: Still Room For Further Gains?

Dear Traders,

We finally saw some corrections in both major currency pairs at the beginning of this holiday-shortened week as investors took profit on long dollar positions. While the euro rose only moderately to 1.0650, the British pound proved to be the best performer and surged to a high of 1.2513. While we believe that the upward movement in the EUR/USD may be limited until 1.0660/90, there could be some room for further gains in the GBP/USD. If the cable is able to break above the 1.2515-level, the focus shifts to the higher target at 1.2550. As stated in previous analysis, a sustained break above 1.2550 could reinvigorate fresh bullish momentum, driving the pair even higher towards 1.2770. Current supports are however seen at 1.2380 and 1.23.

Euro bears should however wait for a renewed break below 1.0570 in order to sell euro towards 1.05.

There are no major economic reports scheduled for release today. The U.S. Existing Home Sales report due at 15:00 UTC is not expected to have a significant impact on the dollar.
