On December 12, the previously-dominating bearish momentum came to an end when the GBP/USD pair visited the price levels of 1.2500 where the backside of the broken daily uptrend was located.
Since then, the current bullish swing has been taking place until January 17 when significant bearish rejection was demonstrated around 1.2999 (Bearish Engulfing candlestick around the downtrend line).
This paused the bullish scenario for a while, allowing sometime for bearish correction towards 1.2830 where another bullish swing was initiated. The GBP/USD pair is currently approaching the price level of 1.3040.
For the bullish scenario to remain valid, bullish persistence above the price level of 1.3000 (The previous Weekly High) should be maintained on a daily basis.
Bullish persistence above 1.3000 enhances a further bullish advance initially towards 1.3155 (Depicted Supply level).
Otherwise, any decline below 1.3000 invalidates the bullish scenario for the short term.
This may bring the GBP/USD pair again into bearish correction that may extend down towards 1.2800 (Nearest Demand Level).
