New highs for the GBPUSDbut running into the October high

The October highs the highest level since May 14. A move above should solicit more buying momentum in the pair.

Drilling to the hourly chart below, the bulls have gotten some help technically from the inability to move back below the 1.2969-71 area (see yellow area with red numbered circles). Instead buyers lean against the level and force the price back to the upside. The bulls still remain in control, but they need to push above the 1.30116 level to give the buyers more upside confidence.
