GBP/USD technical outlook

Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet notes that GBP/USD trades around the 23.6% retracement of the latest daily bearish run, unable to set a clear direction either side of it.

“Despite a daily high of 1.6126, the pair has been unable to sustain gains beyond current price zone, and the 1 hour chart shows price hovering around its 20 SMA while indicators hold near their midlines, leaving a short term neutral tone”, says Bednarik.
