GBPUSD recalls bears targeting 1.1400, UK CPI in the spotlight

GBPUSD recalls bears targeting 1.1400, UK CPI in the spotlight

GBPUSD seesaws below 50-SMA after breaking the weekly support line, not to forget to mention the reversal from a three-week-old horizontal hurdle. The pullback also takes clues from the downside RSI and MACD to suggest further downside towards the yearly low marked the last week around 1.1400. It should, however, be noted that a 61.8% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) of August 17 to September 13 moves, near 1.1280, could challenge the pair sellers afterward. If not then, the downward sloping support line from August 22, close to 1.1230 by the press time, will gain the market’s attention.

Meanwhile, the GBPUSD rebound remains elusive unless crossing the one-month-old horizontal resistance area near 1.1745-50. That said, the one-week-long support-turned-resistance around 1.1630 guards the immediate recovery. If at all the cable pair rises past 1.1750, the 200-SMA level surrounding 1.1890 could act as the last defense for bears, a break of which could give control to the buyers.

Overall, GBPUSD is back into the bear’s court and is likely to renew the yearly low ahead of the key UK inflation numbers.
