Yesterday, the GBP/USD pair continued moving downwards from the level of 1.1531. The pair fell to the bottom around 1.1483 from the level of 1.1531 (coincides with the ratio of 38.2% Fibonacci retracement).

In consequence, the GBP/USD pair broke support, which turned into strong resistance at the level of 1.1531. The level of 1.1531 is expected to act as the minor resistance today.

We expect the GBP/USD pair to continue moving in the bearish trend towards the target levels of 1.1404 and 1.1350.

On the downtrend:

If the pair fails to pass through the level of 1.1531, the market will indicate a bearish opportunity below the level of 1.1531. Moreover, a breakout of that target will move the pair further downwards to 1.1404 in order to form a new double bottom. So, the market will decline further to 1.1404 and 1.1350. On the other hand, if a breakout happens at the support level of 1.1610, then this scenario may be invalidated.
