GBP/USD - Monitoring Downtrend Channel
GBP/USD still lies within a downtrend channel. The pair is trading below 1.3000 and the bearish momentum remains lively. Hourly resistance can be located at 1.3097 (08/08/2016 high). Expected to head towards support implied by the lower bound of the downtrend channel around 1.2900/20.
The long-term technical pattern is even more negative since the Brexit vote has paved the way for further decline. Long-term support given at 1.0520 (01/03/85) represents a decent target. Long-term resistance is given at 1.5018 (24/06/2015) and would indicate a long-term reversal in the negative trend. Yet, it is very unlikely at the moment.
