The short-term outlook is calling for a rebound at the support level of 1.5587, where the 200 SMA is located on the H1 chart. This scenario is possible thanks to the overall trend, which the GBP/USD pair is following on a long-term basis, but we shouldn't discard a breakout towards the support level of 1.5532 in the coming hours.
