GBP/USD closed higher on Thursday as it extends the rally off May's low. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bullish signalling that additional gains are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off May's low, the 50% retracement level of the 2009-2010-decline crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted.
