GBP/USD Price Analysis: Hangs near multi-month low, seems vulnerable below 200-day SMA
The GBP/USD pair continues with its struggle to gain any meaningful traction and languishes near its lowest level since early June touched on Monday.

BoE Governor Andrew Bailey had told lawmakers recently that the central bank is now "much nearer" to ending its run of interest rate increases. This, along with reviving recession fears and signs that the UK labour market is cooling, might put pressure on the BoE to pause its rate-hiking cycle. Read more...
