GBP price, news and analysis:

  • The recent advance in GBP/USD has come to a halt near-term as it struggles to break above resistance at the 200-day moving average.
  • Similarly, the recent decline in EUR/GBP has halted at support from an upward-sloping trendline in place since the start of May.
  • UK retail sales data show a smaller drop in annual sales in May.

GBP/USD rate loses momentum

The recent advance in GBP/USD has ground to a halt at the 200-day moving average. However, it is too early to say whether it will break through to record further gains or start to slip back.

The FTSE 100 index of leading London-listed stocks is failing to advance too, dropping by around 0.4% in early business.
