GBPUSD traded higher again Friday before fading into the close. The pair has cleared the 50-day EMA. The move above this average strengthens the current corrective recovery, signalling scope for gains towards 1.3990 next, a Fibonacci retracement. This lies ahead of a key short-term level at 1.4001, the Jun 23 high. A failure ahead of these resistance points would suggest the end of the current correction. First support is at 1.3836, the 20-day EMA.
