GBP/USD Analysis

The price fell strongly yesterday, breaking through two levels that were expected to be supportive. Overall the action was very bearish although the GBP has been showing a little strength this morning.

There are no new obvious resistant levels at which to go short, but we might expect the previously supportive levels at 1.6500 and 1.6550 to provide resistant opportunities, especially if the GBP news due this morning spikes us up there.

GBPUSD 9314

Regarding the GBP, at 9:30am London time there will be a release of Services PMI data. There are no high-impact data releases due today for the USD. Therefore the New York session is likely to be the more active part of the day.
