Technical Analysis of GBP/USD

Against the US Dollar, the British Pound was unable to overcome the 1.2250 resistance level. GBP/USD began a significant fall and traded beneath the crucial 1.2000 support region.

The pair has consolidated below the crucial 1.2000 support, the 100 simple moving average (4-hour red), and the 200 simple moving average, according to the 4-hour chart. A significant bullish trend line with support close to 1.2100 was also broken below.

 Below the 1.1850 support level, the drop accelerated. If the bears continue to trade, the pair may fall even lower than 1.1750.

Below the 1.1700 zone, where the bears may potentially attempt a move towards the 1.1500 level in the coming days, is the next significant support.
