  • GBP/USD is attempting to consolidate the recent 8-day sell-off which drove Cable to new a new 2018 low at 1.2723, last Friday.
  • Bears objective is to keep extending the bear trend below the current 2018 low in order to reach the 1.2700 figure.  
  • However, given the heavy  selling pressure seen in recent weeks, market participants might allow for some pullback up before resuming the bear trend. Resistances to the upside are likely located near 1.2789 and 1.2838. Bulls have a slight advantage in the short-term despite the main bear trend.
