  • GBP/USD edges down 0.30%, following the Bank of England’s rate decision.
  • Technical outlook shows neutral to upward bias, with critical support at 1.2643/38.
  • Resistance levels to watch: 1.2700, 1.2739, and 1.2800. Support levels include 1.2619, 1.2600, and 200-DMA at 1.2551.

The Pound Sterling collapsed during the North American session, below the 1.2700 figure after the Bank of England (BoE) decided to keep rates unchanged but hinted at a possible cut in the summer. The GBP/USD trades at 1.2677, down 0.30%.

GBP/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook

From a technical perspective, the GBP/USD is neutral to upward biased, but as it approaches the confluence of the 100-day moving average (DMA) and the May 3 high turned support at around 1.2643/38, a pierce underneath that zone, would accelerate the downtrend, change the pair bias and challenge the 50-DMA at 1.2619. Further losses are seen underneath the atter at 1.2600, ahead of testing the 200-DMA at 1.2551.

On the other hand, if buyers lift the exchange rate above 1.2700, the GBP/USD might get to the current week’s high of 1.2739. Once cleared, the next stop would be the already tested 1.2800 mark.
