GBP/USD 4 hour chart

The GBP/USD is building an ABC (pink) correction. The current swing up could be part of a wave B. This means that another bearish swing for wave C is possible. The main target is the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, the -61.8% Fib target, and the 144 ema close (blue box) at the round level of 1.30.

This support zone (blue box) could complete the wave 4 (purple) and start a new uptrend. A break below the 50% Fib however invalidates (red x) the bullish outlook. Alternatively, a break, pullback and bounce above the 21 ema zone could indicate a bullish swing without a deeper retracement.
