By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.6908, down -0.03% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.6917 and low at 1.6905.



Despite a poorer Gfk consumer sentiment number from the UK,-2 vs 2 consensus, Sterling remains buoyant on the 1.69 handle in an environment where the GBP/USD has been continuing to correct lower. Val Bednarik, Chief analyst at FXStreet explained that the hourly chart shows price below a daily ascendant trend line coming from October last year currently around 1.6950 and immediate resistance level, while indicators correct oversold readings, but price remains contained below a bearish 20 SMA. “In the 4 hours chart the pair maintains a strong bearish tone that should keep the upside limited, with a break below 1.6890 suggesting further slides in Pound”.
