Technical forecast for GBP/USD

gbpusd1

GBPUSD topped at 1.5963 & fell back to support at 1.5895/85 which has held the downside as expected so far at least. However the outlook is quite negative so a break lower today should target trend line support at 1.5865. A bounce from here is possible but longs need stops below 1.5850 for the next support at 1.5835/30. Exit shorts here & try longs with stops below 1.5815.

Above 1.5900 is less negative & could allow a move towards 1.5922/27 & possibly a retest of 1.5960/65. Exit longs & try shorts up to 1.6010, looking for a medium sell off on profit taking but we need stops above 1.6050.
