  • GBP/USD drops 100-pips after rising to 1.2919 at the week’s start.
  • Bearish MACD favors the sellers, 50% of Fibonacci retracement can offer immediate support.
  • Bulls await a clear break of August month’s low to confirm entries.

GBP/USD prints 0.20% intraday loss while declining to 1.2820 during Tuesday’s Asian trading. In doing so, the Cable defies the previous day’s recovery moves amid downbeat MACD signals.

The bearish momentum also takes clues from the pair’s inability to cross the previous month’s low during the latest run-up.

As a result, sellers are currently targeting a 50% Fibonacci retracement of May-September upside, near 1.2780. However, a 200-day EMA level of 1.2751 will question the bears afterward.

Should the quote remains weak past-1.2751, the early-July top near 1.2670 may return to the chart.

On the contrary, a successful break of August month’s low near 1.2980 becomes necessary to convince the buyers before directing them to the 1.3000 threshold.
