British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) oversold marginally likely to continue
The Pound-to-Dollar exchange rate is trading at 1.2714 at the start of the new trading week after collapsing over 2.2% in the week before.
The decline came as a result of the collapse of cross-party Brexit talks which had promised to deliver a possible softer ‘customs-union’ Brexit but failed, while markets are preparing for the resignation of Prime Minister Theresa May and expressing caution that she will be replaced by someone more ‘hawkish’ on Brexit.
From a technical perspective, GBP/USD has established a short-term downtrend which is, on balance, more likely to extend than not given the assumption that the “trend is your friend” and therefore biased to continue.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.30.
The projected upper bound is: 1.29.
The projected lower bound is: 1.25.
The projected closing price is: 1.27.
