  • GBP/USD found resistance below the 1.2838 resistance after which Cable retreated below the 1.2800 mark.  
  • GBP/USD is having a sideways consolidation after the sharp drop seen recently. GBP/USD is trading above its 200-period simple moving average on the 15-minute chart suggesting that bears are not totally out of the woods just yet. However, the currency pair is vulnerable to the downside as long as it stays below 1.2838 resistance. A breakout above this level would likely lead to a deeper pullback up.  
  • Bears targets to the downside are located near 1.2723, current 2018 low and at 1.2700 figure.
