FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.6773, down -0.35% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.6836 and low at 1.6767.



GBP/USD continues to slide and analyst at HSBC suggested that the USD is the next currency getting ready for lift-off. “We are getting to the point where tapering is coming to an end and uncertainty is replacing certainty. This should lead to increased speculation regarding US rate rises”. From a technical point of view, Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained, "GBP/USD short‐term technicals: bearish—all signals point to downside risk and today’s ability of spot to fall to a fresh two‐month low warns of building downside momentum. Support lies at 1.6800; while resistance lies at the 100‐day MA at 1.6875."
