GBP/USD: The market has finally taken out the key 2010 lows by 1.4780 to confirm a fresh medium-term lower top by 1.5500 and open the next major downside extension towards critical psychological barriers by 1.4000 over the coming days. At this point however, with daily studies looking stretched, we would not rule out the possibility for a short-term corrective bounce back towards 1.4500-1.4700 to allow for daily studies to correct from oversold. It is worth noting that the 78.6% fib retracement off of the major 2009, 1.3500-1.7050 move, is now being tested in the 1.4200’s, and this area could provide the necessary support to help trigger a bounce.
