  • The past two weeks have seen the Cable moving in a sluggish downtrend, marked by consolidation periods separated by rough chop, but the pair continues to see downside movement from the 200-period MA.

GBP/USD, 30-Minute

  • 4-hour candlesticks have the Cable setting up for a bearish break of previous support just below the 1.2700 handle, and short-sellers will be looking to time a break-and-retest of the significant level with Tuesday’s upcoming Brexit vote to push the GBP/USD pairing into a faster downtrend.
