GBP/USD PRICE CHART: DAILY TIME FRAME (21 FEBRUARY TO 14 MAY 2020)

GBPUSD Price Chart Pound Sterling to US Dollar Forecast

Recent downside in spot GBP/USD price action reiterates the rough trading range etched out by the cable roughly between the 1.2200-1.2600 zone. While the Pound-Dollar oscillates back and forth between these two major technical support and resistance levels, there is the outstanding risk of a possible breakdown lower.

GBP/USD declines have accelerated pace over the last few trading sessions and is illustrated by bearish divergence on the MACD indicator. Also, the British Pound remains threatened by lingering Brexit uncertainty as UK-EU negotiators refuse to budge and find common ground. On another note, the US Dollar has potential to extend its recent stretch of gains post-Powell pushback on negative interest rates and with FX volatility on the rise.
