Conclusion : As long as 1.5050 support holds on a weekly closing basis , the GBPUSD remains in recovery mode in midterm forecast , and further upside couldn’t be ruled out towards the 1.5551 levels , the daily chart is also bullish , as a result ; negative data for GBPUSD could be an opportunity to buy the pair on dips ……..The US Fed hinted before that first rate hike probably will come next June ….Unless the US Fed comes out with a surprise this week , In other words , If US Fed leaves things the way they are , further gains are likely !!! As usual : keep an eye on news near support and resistance levels..
