GBP/USD confirmed a breakout of 1.61

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD finally broke above 1.61, and rushed higher to current 1.6120 area.

Slow European trading on the back of practically empty economic calendar of Monday didn’t prevent the pound from rising above 1.61. As the breakout is confirmed, the pair targeted 1.6120/25 area, where large sellers’ interest is rumored. If broken, the next barrier with large amount of sellers’ bid noted around 1.6150/60. However, the correction lower from current levels is not ruled out, and in this case the broken 1,61 resistance level may become a key support.
