Updated daily direction for GBPUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 1.27048 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 1.27873 or trades above daily pivot 1.27461. Break above could target R1 at 1.27898. While to the downside, we are looking at 1.27048 (S1) and daily low of 1.27023 as support levels. GBPUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias.
