GBP/USD: A retest of the 1.20/1.21 area looks likely – Scotiabank

GBP/USD slips back after late week rebound stalls. Economists at Scotiabank analyze the pair’s outlook.


Bearish momentum is strong

The GBP recovery on Thursday stalled badly on Friday and a weak close to the session left a bearish look on the short-term chart. Losses are extending again today.

The GBP looks oversold but bearish momentum is strong and a retest of the 1.20/1.21 area looks likely.

Resistance is 1.2220/1.2230.
