GBP/USD daily chart

  • GBP/USD stretches its slid beneath resistance-turned-support by trading near 1.3175 during early Tuesday.
  • With the pair’s sustained trading under 1.3190 support-line, now resistance, that joins highs marked in September 2018 and January 2019, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of its June 2018 to January 2019 drop near 1.3070 can’t be denied.
  • However, 1.3000-1.2990 support-zone, including 200-day simple moving average (SMA), could restrict the pair’s south-run under 1.3070.
  • Meanwhile, pair’s pullback may have to surpass 1.3190 on a daily closing to challenge 1.3260 and the February month high around 1.3350.
  • During the pair’s successful trading beyond 1.3350, 1.3385 and 1.3445 may act as buffers ahead of highlighting 1.3475 resistance.
