GBP/USD has managed to resist a close under 1.30 over the previous two sessions as it recovered from under the figure. However, economists at Scotiabank expect cable to suffer further losses below the recent lows of 1.2990/80 towards the 1.2850 regions.
Solid resistance around the 1.3050 zone is set to prevent a material rebound
“Solid resistance around the mid-figure zone is set to prevent a material rebound in the GBP that would suggest a rejection of the bearish trend since the test of 1.33 about three weeks ago.”
“Price action continues to point to losses extending and holding below 1.30 and the recent lows between 1.2980 and 1.2990; the mid-1.28s and the figure follow as support.”
