The British pound is trading within an uptrend channel on the 4-hour chart. On Friday, it rose to the high of 1.3890 due to weak Non-Farm Payrolls data. The pair found strong resistance near 1.39 as this level is located at the top of the bullish channel.
The US nonfarm payroll report released on Friday fell far short below projections, with just 235,000 new jobs in August. This data was the impulse for GBP/USD although a few days before the market had discounted this fact with the ADP data, which were equally negative for the US dollar.
The pair has reflected the sentiment of investors who viewed the NFP report with pessimism. Due to this, we observed the GBP/USD pair rise from the 1.36 level to 1.39, around 300 pips in 10 days. This could give a sign that the British pound could make a technical correction in the coming days .

An additional fact is that around 1.3793 the bottom line of the bullish channel is located. If the GBP/USD pair makes a technical bounce around this level, it will be a good opportunity to buy with the targets at 1.3855 and 1.3916 (4/8).
There is strong resistance at 1.3916 with 4/8 of murray that on previous occasions has acted as a strong barrier. Therefore, a pullback towards this resistance will be a good opportunity to sell the pair with the target at 1.3793.
