GBP/USD Forecast: Correction could be in the books before the next leg higher
GBP/USD has gone into a consolidation phase below 1.2100 following Wednesday’s rally.

Meanwhile, the technical outlook shows that the pair is overbought and that it might need to make a downward correction before building on its recent gains.
