GBP/USD faces the next hurdle at 1.3200
Cable is prolonging the rally on Tuesday. Indeed, extra gains appear supported by the broad-based weakness in the greenback, although the downtick in open interest hints at the presence of short covering behind the move up. That said, GBP/USD faces a strong hurdle in the 1.3200 neighbourhood, which could spark at the same time some consolidation or even a correction lower.
