GBPUSD upside remains elusive below 1.1400

GBPUSD upside remains elusive below 1.1400

The US dollar’s decline versus most currencies on Friday allowed GBPUSD to bounce off a three-week-old support line. The recovery, however, needs validation from a monthly resistance line, around 1.1400 by the press time. Following that, the monthly high around 1.1490 may act as an intermediate halt before directing bulls towards September’s top surrounding 1.1740. In a case where the quote rises past 1.1740, July’s low near 1.1760 appears the last defense of bears ahead of highlighting the 1.2000 psychological magnet for the buyers.

Meanwhile, sellers remain confused unless the quote stays beyond an upward-sloping support line from September 29, close to 1.1060 by the press time. Should GBPUSD sellers manage to conquer the 1.1060 support, a south-run towards the monthly low, currently around 1.0925, can’t be ruled out. Furthermore, the quote’s weakness past 1.0925 could take halts near 1.0760 and 1.0630 before revisiting the record low flashed the last month, around 1.0355.

Overall, GBPUSD pares the previous monthly losses but it isn’t out of the woods.
