GBPUSD sellers should keep eyes on 1.2760 and UK PMI

GBPUSD sellers should keep eyes on 1.2760 and UK PMI

GBPUSD marked the first weekly loss in three while slipping beneath the 100-SMA and an upward-sloping support trend line stretched from late June. Adding strength to the downside were bearish MACD signals and the RSI line’s reversal from the overbought territory. However, the MACD teases a bull cross as the RSI hovers around the oversold territory, which in turn suggests a corrective bounce in the Cable price. The same highlights a convergence of the 200-SMA and a two-month-old rising trend line, close to 1.2760 as the key level to watch as traders await the UK PMIs for July. In a case where the Pound Sterling drops below the 1.2760 support, the odds of witnessing the quote’s slump towards the late June swing low of around 1.2590 can’t be ruled out. However, the June start swing high of around 1.2550-45 and 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of its May-July upside, near 1.2480, can test the bears before directing them to the May month’s low of around 1.2310.

Meanwhile, a convergence of the 100-SMA and the previous support line from late June, close to 1.2870 at the latest, restricts the immediate upside of the GBPUSD pair. Following that, the 1.2960 and the 1.3000 psychological magnet may challenge the buyers before giving them control. In that case, the yearly high marked earlier in the month of around 1.3145 will be in the spotlight.

Overall, GBPUSD is likely to witness further downside but it all depends upon the UK data and 1.2760 break.
