Chart: GBP/USD Five-Minute Timeframe (July 7, 2017)
GBP/USD is now more likely to challenge support at or just below 1.26 rather than resistance at 1.30 and above. However, much will depend on the upcoming releases of average earnings and consumer price inflation numbers, which the Bank of England’s rate-setters will want to see before making a decision on interest rates. That decision is likely to be the key influence on the Pound in the weeks and months ahead.
