British Pound: USD/GBP (GBP=X) turning higher after recent decline
GBP/USD has seen a sharp decline below $1.3055 over the past week, with the price creating a new lower low after the recent 61.8% upside retracement.
Despite the broader uptrend over the past month, there is a possibility we could see this move as a wider retracement of the $1.2785-$1.3299 rally. For now, there is a good chance that we could rebound, given the bullish engulfing pattern in play. However, such a move would likely provide a retracement of the downturn from $1.3217 before we reverse lower once again. This brings the wider retracement into view, with a possible drop towards $1.2981 and even $1.2906.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 1.32.
The projected lower bound is: 1.29.
The projected closing price is: 1.30.
