GBPUSD is trading in its bullish channel, between the upper blue and red bands, on its daily time frame. The longer it maintains this position, the greater the likelihood of further price appreciation. The hourly chart has also turned positive. Its trend-following EMAs and momentum based stochastic have both crossed up (black ellipses). The stochastic moving into its upper quintile and holding (blue arrow) will connote an underlying momentum. This may lead to a bullish swing on the hourly.
