GBPUSD faded into the Friday close and a key short-term resistance has been defined at that day's high of 1.2545. Note too that, despite a brief test above it, the 61.8% retracement of the May 10 - 25 downleg at 1.2538 remains intact. A continuation lower would be bearish and attention would shift to 1.2308, the May 25 low and key support. Clearance of Friday’s high is required to reinstate the recent bull cycle.
