GBPUSD – may fall further as greenback regains traction; key support at 1.3457/54
Cable remains in red on Thursday and extends weakness off 1.3585 lower top into fourth straight day and hits the lowest level in 2018 at 1.3473, where fresh weakness found footstep, provided by base of thick 4-hr cloud.
Fresh weakness probes again below cracked Fibo support at 1.3493 (Fibo 38.2% of 1.3301/1.3612 upleg), as pound is coming under fresh pressure on fading concerns about China slowing purchases of US bonds.
Close below 1.3493 would be bearish signal, with extension and close below 1.3457 / 54 (daily Kijun-sen / 50% retracement / 20SMA) needed to confirm and signal further easing.
Broken 10SMA (1.3524) is expected to cap and maintain negative near-term bias
