GBP/USD outlook: Cable stands at the back foot ahead of key UK inflation data

Bears extend into fourth consecutive day and probe through important support at 1.2026 (50% of 1.1760/1.2293 upleg/daily Kijun-sen), pressuring psychological 1.20 support.

Technical structure on daily chart is negative (MA’s in bearish setup/14-d momentum extending lower in negative territory), supporting scenario of break below pivotal 1.20 zone that would complete a double-top pattern on daily chart (1.2293/76) and signal an end corrective phase from 1.1760 (July 14 low, the lowest since March 2020). Read more...
