GBP/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The GBP/USD is biased downward, though it failed to crack a support trendline at around the day’s low of 1.2467, which could have opened the door for further losses. Despite the bounce, momentum is still favoring sellers, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) standing at bearish territory, with its slope aiming down.

In the event of GBP/USD clearing the 1.2500 psychological level, the next resistance would be the 200-day moving average (DMA) at 1.2543. Once cleared, the next stop would be intermediate resistance at the May 6 high at 1.294, followed by the latest cycle high seen at 1.2634, the May 3 high.
