Key Quotes

24-hour view: “GBP traded sideways as expected albeit at a higher range than anticipated. Neutral indicators continue to suggest further range trading for now, likely between 1.3265 and 1.3345″.

Next 1-3 weeks: “The bearish phase that started earlier this month remains intact as GBP hit a fresh 2018 low of 1.3205 on Tuesday (29 May) before registering an ‘inside day’ yesterday. While the down-move is severely oversold, it is too early to expect a low. Only a break of 1.3360 (‘stop-loss’ level) would indicate that a short-term bottom is in place. Until then, another attempt to crack 1.3200 is not ruled out and a break of this level would shift the focus to 1.3150. That said, 1.3200 is rather strong level and this support would not be easy to break (shorter-term indicators suggest GBP could consolidate for a few days first at these lower levels)”.
