FXstreet.com (Edinburgh) - The weakness surrounding the sterling is accelerating on Friday pre-NFP, dragging the GBP/USD to briefly pierce the 1.5000 key support.

GBP/USD remains vulnerable

The pound is prolonging its intraday decline, sparked after the dovish statement from the first BoE meeting commanded by M.Carney on Thursday. After stressing that a rise in the rate path was not warranted, analysts at RBS commented, “We do not interpret this as a signal that the MPC’s policy preference is to cut Bank Rate, rather we believe QE gilt purchases remain the principal monetary policy tool with August now a close call”.

GBP/USD key levels

As of writing the pair is retreating 0.395 at 1.5013 with the next support at 1.4996 (low Jul.5) followed by 1.4915 (low Mar.14) and finally 1.4892 (low Mar.13). On the flip side, a breakout of 1.5238 (MA10d) would target 1.5305 (high Jul.3) en route to 1.5346 (high Jun.27).
