GBP/USD prints 0.14% loss as is trading closer to 1.31 down from the highs closer to 1.32 recorded yesterday. Karen Jones, Team Head FICC Technical Analysis Research at Commerzbank, sees the cable correcting lower as the 1.3165 2015-2020 downtrend has proven to be too tough for the pound. Initial support awaits at 1.2814, the June high.
