In view of Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at Fxstreet.com: "the hourly chart shows indicators still giving some signs of exhaustion near oversold readings, yet far from suggesting an upward correction," the analyst notes, adding: "20 SMA in the mentioned time frame accelerated lower, currently acting as dynamic resistance around recent highs of 1.5560/70," suggesting a "Lower low in the daily chart, supports a downside continuation with 1.5200 still as possible target."

While CMT and FXstreet.com Independent Analyst Fan Yang points out that "We might anticipate some short-term support here, but if the price continues to slide, the bearish outlook opens up the a key support around 1.5267," the analyst says, noting "A break above 1.59 is required to neutralize the bearish outlook," Fan concludes.

Immediate support to the downside for GBPUSD lies at Aug 02 lows 1.5486, followed by July 06/25 lows at 1.5454, and July 12 lows at 1.5389. To the upside, closest resistance shows at recent session highs 1.5543, followed by Tuesday's lows at 1.5573, and Feb 05/06 lows at 1.5630.
