GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Recent upmoves to remain capped by descending channel

  • Intraday action on GBP/USD continues to drift towards the middle as the pair remains constrained within recent highs and lows. 
  • Tuesday's peak-and-drop saw the pair fail to mark in territory north of the key 1.2700 handle, leaving the pair exposed to further downside.

GBP/USD, 5-Minute

  • The Cable is seeing higher lows as the US Dollar drifts across the board, but GBP bidders have been unable to push the pair over key resistance.

GBP/USD, 30-Minute

  • 4-hour candlesticks show GBP/USD 'falling up' back into a descending channel from last week's bottom near 1.2450, but key resistance has the pair remaining restricted by the upper bound of the Cable's descending trendline.
