Looking ahead on Monday, GBPUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.26056.

As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 1.27593 (WR1) with break above could target 1.28094 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 1.26056 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 1.27325 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.
