The GBPUSD attempted to push higher yesterday, topped at 1.5562 but whipsawed to the downside, bottomed at 1.5445 and hit 1.5435 earlier today in Asian session. On h4 chart below we can see price slipped below the minor trend line support indicates potential further bearish pressure testing 1.5370/50 and the trend line support in nearest term, but note that as long as price stay above the trend line support we are still in consolidation phase. Immediate resistance at 1.5525/50 area. Break above that area could lead us to neutral zone in nearest term testing 1.5600/50. Fundamental focus on the US NFP number today, which is expected to be good, forecast around 159K with previous number only 39K. A better than expected US NFP number could push Sterling lower testing the trend line support while a worse than expected result could prevent further bearish pressure and keep price in range area, but the major scenario remains to the downside.
