GBP/USD remains sideways near 1.5500

Cable still holds a bullish tone on a wider perspective but the upside remains capped by the 1.55 handle. Last week and also today it reached levels above 1.5500 but it was rejected. But the corrections from there were limited.

Today GBP/USD bottomed at 1.5453 and last week corrections from the highs were capped above 1.5420. Since last Wednesday it is moving in a range of less than a hundred pips, on a consolidation mode. A confirmation above 1.5500 could open the doors for more gains while below 1.5400, the correction could gain momentum.
