GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Holding at 1.2750, but downward pressure continues to mount

Despite an early GBP/USD run-up, the pairing remains well-attached to the 200-period moving average as the upside remains capped off by bearish pressure from descending intraday highs.

GBP/USD, 5-Minute

The past two weeks see the Cable experiencing a mild downside drift, but consistent drives into the upside are preventing a smooth selling environment as Brexit-centric market focus continues to whip the GBP markets, hobbling any trend opportunities in the near-term.

GBP/USD, 30-Minute

Moving further back, 4-Hour candles show the Cable getting squeezed by consistent downside pressure into major support from the 1.2700 handle, and bidders continue to come out of the woodwork at the critical level to stop the GBP/USD's slide below that level, and the barrier can be expected to continue holding unless Tuesday's Brexit vote broadly misses.
