On Thursday, the pound fell against USD, despite the publication of upbeat UK data, as the US dollar was supported by comments from yesterday's Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen. During European morning trade, the pair GBP/USD reached 1.3002, the session low, and subsequently consolidated at 1.3004, shedding 0.13%.
The pair is still pushing to the downside despite the spinning top and hammer bars that have formed on the 4-hour time frame. A breakout below 1.2945 would be a signal for another drop towards 1.2915 - 1.2900.
The British Pound was up against the US Dollar on Friday. By the close of US trading GBP/USD was trading at 1.2978, gaining 0.08%. I believe that the support is now located at the level of 1.2914, Monday's low, and resistance is at the level of 1.3060 - the maximum of Thursday.
The GBPUSD was indecisive yesterday. The bias remains bearish in nearest term testing 1.2600 before targeting 1.2500. Immediate resistance remains around 1.2790. A clear break and daily close back above that area could lead price to neutral zone in nearest term testing 1.2860 area but overall I remain bearish.
Already saw the retracement Friday - whether you take the 1.19 lows at most brokers or the or the 1.12 etc from some sources - pair retraced > 78.6 that day. Saw lots of folks calling for a bounce completely ignoring this. Holding short.
The British pound continued to depreciate against the dollar for a third day on Monday. The pair slid 35 pips to 1.2359, with a decline of over 5% for the past eight sessions. Trading took place in the final values 1.2443 and 1.2344. Technically the bears remain in the leading position, but recovery of the RSI and inability to breakthrough from current levels may lead to start of an upward movement.
