GBPUSD faded into the Friday close, to finish the week broadly flat. The mid-week recovery reinforces a bullish theme, however, with attention on resistance at 1.2293, the Aug 1 high. A break would signal scope for an extension higher and open 1.2332, the Jun 27 high. Potential is also seen for a climb towards 1.2406, the Jun 16 high and the next key key resistance. Initial support to watch is unchanged at 1.2004, Aug 5 low.
