June 27, 2013 – GBP/USD (daily chart) has extended its steep plunge of the last week-and-a-half to drop tentatively below major historical support around the 1.5250 price region. Within the past few years this level has served as a pivotal support point (October 2011, January 2012, and June 2012), and more recently as a key resistance level. The fact that price has just dropped below this important level is a substantial bearish indication for the currency pair that hints at further downside momentum to come. The next major bearish objective resides around the 1.5000 figure, last hit in late May, and then a potential retest of the March 1.4830 low. Any further breakdown below that long-term low would confirm a continuation of the bearish trend extending back to the very beginning of the year, of which the most recent bullish correction retraced a rather precise 61.8%.
