Following a multi-year high which this pair made in early July, it has been falling quite steadily due to both recent USD strength and a feeling in the market that the GBP had gone as far as it could go for now, after a very impressive bull run that had lasted more than a year.
However there has been some bullishness in recent days, with a bottom forming at 1.6808. This level acted as both support, then resistance during May and June when the price was last here.
If this bottom holds we should be due for a more meaningful upwards correction. Watch out for the bearish trend line shown in the chart below above the current price, as well as likely resistance at the 1.6893 level.
There are high-impact data releases due today concerning both the GBP and the USD. At Noon London time the Bank of England will announce the Asset Purchase Facility and the Official Bank Rate. Later at 1:30pm there will be a release of US Unemployment Claims data.
