Welton, Imran bhai is really good at this, You can ask him when to buy, It might will retrace again from 1.5370 but overall it's buy. I have 4 buy positions opened. I think Let it break 1.5370 then you can buy till 1.54 first TP then 1.5441 second TP. but again Ask Imran bhai, i am just a student and still learning, don't wanna put you in risk.
thank you Abdul. but you are very good in this. i take your suggestions and also confirm with my own analysis to see if i am in the right track.

I read the caption of Carney speech and they are very positive for GBPUSD. Now cable is strong and finding difficulty to pull back. Even 1.5317 - 1.5337 pull back at the most. I am learning things now. Just concentrate on "w". Okay dear going for the prayer. See you tomorrow. Allah Hafiz
thank you. have us in your prayers also
