GBP/USD closed higher on Wednesday as it extends the rally off December's low. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are diverging but have turned bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off December's low, weekly resistance crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the reaction low crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted.
