  • The GBP/USD will need to scramble if buyers are going to pick the pair up from the week’s bottoms thanks to a swift decline yesterday, and recovery bounces quickly coming under short-side pressure from USD bidders.
  • The Sterling is testing back into recent swing lows as mid-August’s bullish recovery looks set to wane with plenty of room below the 200-day SMA, and the GBP/USD is nearing the 50% retracement area of 2018’s technical bottom.
  • The Pound is -4.26% off of 2018’s opening prices, and has shed nearly -10.0% off of its chart from March’s peak at 1.4376, and the year’s fourth quarter looks set to face similar declines, with the pair slipping -0.82% as the Sterling rounds the corner into a second week of straight losses, with the pace of declines giving hints of possibly accelerating, assuming the US Dollar index continues its current course.
