Technical Market Outlook:
The GBP/USD pair keeps trading in a narrow horizontal range located between the levels of 1.3047 – 1.3100 as the volatility dries up. There is so far no indication of any bearish pressure and all the sideway price action looks like a typical correction in an up trend.

Any breakout above the local high at 1.3121 might accelerate the rally towards the level of 1.3169.
