GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Hampered by resistance, aiming below 1.2600


  • Intraday action on GBP/USD remains underpinned by soft support from the 1.2600-12615 zone, and swings higher continue to fail to develop meaningful momentum as the Sterling continues to be cowed by Brexit headlines.

GBP/USD, 5-Minute

  • The past two weeks have seen the Cable break near-term consolidation to mark in a new 20-month low at 1.2477, and the bullish recovery saw stiff new resistance priced in at the previous support level of 1.2670.

GBP/USD, 30-Minute

  • The past two months sees the GBP/USD pairing stuck in a bearish cycle, accelerating out of the regular selling zone, and the bullish bounceback has seen the Cable return to a nominally bearish cycle as bidders get pushed back into the overarching bear-trend.
