GBP/USD Analysis

The strong downwards trend is still continuing. The USD is the strongest currency right now, while the GBP is quite weak in contrast.

Early this morning, the price bounced off the old support level I identified last week at 1.6550. It would not be surprising if we now have a bullish pull back, although that support might be used up by now.

Once we get back to around 1.6600 or higher, the price is quite likely to fall again.

The key round number of 1.6500, which has also acted as flipped support and resistance, should act as support in the unlikely event that we get down there today.

GBPUSD 82714

There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning either the GBP or the USD, so it likely to be a quiet day.
