Key quotes

“GBP/USD last week eroded uptrend support at 1.2883 it starts this week under pressure. The market is approaching the 200-day ma at 1.2735 and Fibo support at 1.2691. While this may hold the initial test, it is now exposed and near term risk is on the downside. Failure here will target 1.2445 and then 1.2250/00.”

“Intraday rallies are likely to find that the 20-day ma at 1.3142 now acts as near-term resistance and while capped here the market remains directly offered.”
