GBP/USD is in the stage of a slight downward correction after rising to the level of 1.29114. If the sellers manage to decline the rate below the level of 1.28900 ( middle line of Bollinger bands), the correction can continue to the area of 1.28784-1.28670. One may speak about downward movement continuation after the price consolidates below the level of 1.28650. In this case, the next targets of sellers will be the level of 1.28479 support.
The rebound from 1.28900 could lead the price back to 1.29114 resistance. The upward trend will be restored after the price is set above this level.

Meanwhile, the decisive breakout could trigger pair’s fresh run-up to a 5-days high surrounding 1.29700.
