GBP/USD - 1.3846. Although cable re-tested Wed's 1.3949 high in Asia, price met renewed selling n later tumbled to 1.3825 in NY on cross-selling in sterling as well as renewed USD's strength b4 moving sideways.

On the bigger picture, despite cable's brief break of 2016 post-Brexit low of 1.1491 to a near 35-year trough of 1.1412 in mid-Mar 2020 on safe-haven USD's demand following free fall in global stocks. Although cable rallied to 1.3686 on the last trading day of 2020 following a last-minute EU-UK trade deal, then to a near 34-month 1.4241 peak in late Feb, subsequent fall to 1.36 70 in Apr signals top is made n stronger retracement to 1.3566 would be seen. Having said that, Mon's rise abv prev. Apr's 1.3919 high suggests temporary low is in place n consolidation with upside bias remains for gain to 1.4074 (70.7% r) b4 prospect of pullback. Only below 1.3810 risks weakness to 1.3720/30.

Today, as y'day's selloff fm 1.3949 to 1.3825 suggests recent upmove fm Apr's 1.3670 low has made a temp. top at Tue's 7-week peak of 1.4009 n weakness to 1.3760/65 would be seen after consolidation, however, oversold readings on hourly oscillators should keep price abv 1.3717. Abv 1.3886 risks 1.3915/20.
