GBPUSD 30 minute chart is setting up to appreciate with daily showing signs of bullish sentiment.

Technically GBPUSD has been finding support around the 1.6050 level which roughly corresponds with the 61.8 retracement level for the larger swing (high to low on the chart below). Price is now isolating in the range and forming a V shape, with a break of resistance (1.6110) where this level becomes support (i.e. price breaks, retraces and bounces off) qualifies an potential move to the extension (1.6190) with a break below support at 1.6050 negating our bullish view.
