British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) $1.27 may be another selling opportunity
Last night’s win by UK Prime Minister Theresa May was already priced in, GBP/USD having moved smartly off the lows during the day.
But having broken sharply lower earlier in the week the pair has now created a lower low and a lower high. Any rally that pushes back to $1.27 may be another selling opportunity, and it would require a recovery above $1.28 to put a more bullish view on the currency pair.
