GBPUSD traded materially weaker into the Wednesday close, marking four consecutive sessions of losses and a partial retracement of the late June rally. Markets are on watch for a potential reversal pattern in the pair - which would gather strength on a break below 1.2866 - the 50% retracement of the late June upleg. Support at 1.2932, the 38.2% Fib level, broke. More broadly, the medium-term uptrend remains intact, with moving average studies in bull-mode position. The focus is on 1.3174, the top of a bull channel drawn from the Mar 8 low. Initial firm support lies at 1.2868, the 20-day EMA.
