GBPUSD is firmer in line with general USD weakness and is edging higher towards the top of its recently established range between 1.3186, Aug 6 high and 1.2982, Aug 4 low. Trend signals remain bullish with moving average studies still pointing north. A break of 1.3186 would confirm a resumption of the uptrend and expose 1.3200 and open 1.3284, Dec 31 2019 high. Weakness below 1.2982 is required to signal a deeper correction.
