FxWirePro: GBP/USD outlook weaker on renewed downside pressure

  • The Sterling remained in strong bearish tone against dollar on Wednesday as worries about Britain's economic prospects and the Brexit process encouraged investors to push the pound lower.
     
  • The government is striving to move forward the formal discussions on leaving the European Union with a series of position papers that have outlined potential compromises over some of the issues likely to block progress this year.
     
  • Sterling, which has fallen more than 3 percent against the dollar since the start of August, was trading at $1.2795 after touching a low of $1.2777.
     
  • The pair remains under bears control unless until it trades below 1.2867 resistance level, therefore it is good to sell this pair on rallies.
     
  • To the upside, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2822, a break above this level would expose to cable to next resistance level at 1.2867.
     
  • To the downside immediate support can be seen at 1.2777, a break below will open the door towards next level at 1.2724.
