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