GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Tests a descending trend-channel support ahead of US CPI

   •  Struggled to move back above 200-hour SMA and has now fallen to test a short-term descending trend-channel formation on the 1-hourly chart.

   •  With short-term technical indicators holding in negative territory, a modest rebound, following the release of updated Brexit white paper, might turn out to be short-lived.

   •  Stronger-than-expected US CPI print might trigger a fresh bout of selling and contribute towards confirming a near-term bearish breakdown.
