From the bottom to a doji

Cable bottomed on European hours at 1.3858, the lowest level since February 18. Later, as markets across the world moved off lows, GBP/USD rose back above 1.3900. Recently reach 1.3934 and then pulled back modestly.

 A daily close around the current level would end up in a doji candle that would suggest some consolidation ahead. If it ends under 1.3850, more losses seem likely.

For the next hours, the immediate support stands at 1.3900, followed by 1.3865. On the upside, resistance might be seen at 1.3935 and then 1.3975.
