FXstreet.com (CÃ³rdoba) - Cable fell so far during the American session against the Dollar erasing previous gains. Current price at 1.6277/79 is only 0.03% above today's opening price. GBP/USD failed earlier to hold above 1.6300 and weakened, falling to 1.6255, posting a fresh intra-day low.
Against the Euro and the Swiss Franc, Cable is rising for the first time in more than a week. GBP/CHF is holding above 1.7200 but the pair retreated from intra-day high at 1.7305. EUR/GBP is back below 0.8800. The pair fell and found support at 0.8775.
James Chen, Chief analyst at FX Solutions, comments: After traversing up a dramatically steep parallel uptrend channel for the past week and a half, price action on EUR/GBP, a 4-hour chart of which is shown, has finally shown signs of a potential bullish exhaustion by making a tentative breakdown below the channel. This occurs after price hit a 12-week high of 0.8837 on Thursday. With continued bearishness on this breakdown, a clear initial support target to the downside resides around the 0.8700 price region.
