Forex: GBP/USD testing support at 1.5080 after US ADP

The GBP/USD has fallen on the heels of a upbeat economic data in the United States Wednesday. A previous upside attempt was halted at 1.5104, causing the pair to decline at the onset of American trading in recent moments. At the time of writing, the cross has settled at 1.5073/76, down -0.35%.

According to the ICN.com Analyst Team, “The GBP/USD dropped during today’s session before rebounding to 1.5100 levels. Trading below 1.5190 levels is negative; RSI is trading with a negative bias below 50 supporting our expectations.”

In the United States, the ADP Employment Change (February) came in at 198K, against expectations of 170K, and compared with 192K previously. Later today at 15:00 GMT investors will learn of the Factory Orders figure, which will shine more light on the status of the US economy.

The ICN.com analysts point to supports at 1.5080, followed by 1.5035, and the 1.5000 barrier. On the positive side, the GBP/USD will encounter resistive means at 1.0260, then 1.5130, 1.5190, and ultimately 1.5225.
