The downward movement in GBPUSD, however, found some support to buy near Monday’s swing high at 1.36738. The low price just hit 1.36747 just above that level. The pair is in the process of tipping higher, with the pair currently trading at 1.36879.

The GBPUSD low was a lower target and a former high. Correcting and holding above (PS, price also remains above the 50% retracement at 1.36617 on the hourly chart), sets (and solidifies) at least one level of risk for buyers.
Stay above and we might see a rotation towards resistance at the day’s highs.
