The trend needle in GBPUSD continues to point south despite Friday’s strength. A bearish sequence of lower lows and lower highs and Wednesday’s fresh trend low print reinforce bearish conditions. The trend is oversold, however, this does not appear to be a concern for bears. Key support at 1.1412, Mar 20 2020 low, has been pierced. This is a major support and a clear break would strengthen bearish conditions. Firm resistance is at 1.1718, the 20-day EMA.
