Lower in range. GBPUSD remains under pressure

FX_IDC:GBPUSD   British Pound / U.S. Dollar
GBPUSD is finding difficulty extending the bounce from the 1.1450 low of October, with fresh sellers appearing just beneath the 1.2795 low of July and 1.2805/10 Fibonacci retracements.

Prices are settling into consolidation, as studies turn mixed, but bearish background studies are intact, suggesting fresh downside risks in the coming months. A close below 1.2200 will open up 1.2000 and the 1.1950 year low of October 2016 , with potential for deeper reactions towards the 1.1880 low of May 1985 as the underlying bear trend from July 2014 keeps investors cautious.
Negative longer term readings see risk of still deeper reactions towards 1.1000.

A close above congestion around 1.2500 would help to improve price action, but a further close above the 1.2795-1.2810 barrier is needed to signal a more sustainable consolidation phase and turn investors neutral once again.
