GBP/USD technical perspective

"A daily ascendant trend line coming from 1.5877 offers now support around 1.6360, key intraday level as price acceleration below it should trigger a deeper downside correction, eyeing then past week lows around 1.6290", says Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXstreet.com. "If price however bounces from the mentioned trend line, price may attempt to recover again above the 1.6410 mark, looking then for a short term rally towards 1.6450/60 price zone".
