GBP/USD uptrend appears to be intact
The pair is now close to the December peak at $1.2760. A break above here leaves the price free to test $1.2980 and then $1.3090.
The Bank of England meeting and inflation report will provide volatility, but the uptrend remains intact unless we see a move below $1.2550.
