Pound Sterling Price News and Forecast: GBP/USD remains vulnerable to slide further


GBP/USD Forecast: Selling opportunity? Dead-cat bounce leaves critical support in danger

Every trend has a countertrend – yet if the move in the opposite direction has no justification, it could prove short-lived.
