GBP/USD Analysis

The USD came back quite strongly at the end of last week, and all the major USD pairs made new long-term highs. This pair was no exception. Following the NFP last Friday, we broke the support at 1.5591 and it now looks like a return to 1.5594 could be the impetus for a continued move down, if we return there today.

Below, there is likely support at 1.5500 which should be a key psychological number, but this level should be treated with extra care.

The overall picture looks bearish.

GBPUSD 12814

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today directly concerning either the GBP or the USD. It is likely to be a quiet day for this pair.
