The British Pound depreciates even if the United Kingdom Unemployment Rate dropped unexpectedly from 4.2% to 4.1%. In addition, the Claimant Count Change was reported at -43.3K versus -38.6K expected, while the Average Hourly Earnings came in line with expectations, registering a 4.2% growth.

As you can see on the H4 chart, the pair retested the descending pitchfork’s upper median line which represents a dynamic resistance and now could challenge the 23.6% retracement level. A valid breakdown could signal deeper drop.
