GBP/USD has bounced sharply near the key support at 1.5855. However, prices have thus far failed to invalidate their succession of lower highs. As a result, monitor the resistance at 1.6227. Hourly supports lie at 1.6030 (17/10/2014 low) and 1.5942 (16/10/2014 low). Another resistance stands at 1.6287.
In the longer term, the collapse in prices after having reached 4-year highs has created a strong resistance at 1.7192, which is unlikely to be broken in the coming months. Despite the recent short-term bearish momentum, we favour a temporary rebound near the support at 1.5855 (12/11/2013 low). A key resistance lies at 1.6525.
