GBP/USD breaks ove 50 percent retracement

This break indicates that we can expect further gains towards the 61.8% retracement which is at 1.5788. We had discussed this in yesterday in this chart alert for GBPUSD. What we had missed to mention in the last alert that the second resistance of the previous support line which seems to have turned into resistance also falls near the 61.8% retracement and hence that level becomes a crucial resistance zone. A break over that may bring some good gains for the currency pair but a failure near that level may bring deeper falls.
