    Significant supply levels located around 1.5300 (weekly 38.2% Fibonacci level) and 1.5500 (weekly 50% Fibonacci level) have been providing significant supply over the GBP/USD pair for a few months.

    Evident bullish recovery emerged from the area around 1.4550 where a significant bullish engulfing weekly candlestick was expressed.

    As mentioned in the previous articles, persistence above the levels of 1.5000-1.5080 exposed the weekly supply zone of 1.5500-1.5550 (roughly corresponding to weekly 50% Fibonacci level), where significant bearish pressure was previously applied on February 22.

    The current weekly candlestick closure should be monitored to determine the next destination of the pair.

    As anticipated, persistence above the weekly supply at 1.5530 ends the ongoing bearish trend for a few weeks.
