Technical Market Outlook:

The GBP/USD pair is still under the bearish pressure and recently fell to two week's low at the level of 1.1994 (at the time of writing the analysis). Any sustained violation of the level of 1.2003 will likely result in another down wave towards the level of 1.1933 and below. The momentum is weak and negative already at the H4 time frame chart, so the bearish dominance is obvious. Please keep an eye on the trend line breakout/bounce (thick orange line on the chart) as the price action around the line will give us more clues regarding the down move strength. The larger time frame trend (daily and weekly) remains down until further notice.

Trading Outlook:

The Cable is way below 100 and 200 DMA , so the bearish domination is clear and there is no indication of down trend termination or reversal. The bulls are now trying to start the corrective cycle after a big Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern was made on the weekly time frame chart, however there is no visible progress here yet. The next long term target for bears is seen at the level of 1.1410. Please remember: trend is your friend.
