GBP/USD’s recovery has seemingly lost momentum as signaled by a Doji formation on the daily. Alongside a core downtrend some skepticism over a further advance may be warranted. Selling interest is likely to be renewed at the 1.6170 ceiling. While a daily close below 1.5880 would potentially open the way for a descent towards the mid-September 2013 low near 1.5770.
