GBPUSD takes a bearish move below key average



Monday’s modest gains only led to temporary and limited upside on Tuesday. A renewal of selling interest dominated the latter part of the day, with the resulting decline being the most negative performance for eight days.

This only took Cable back to the Marabuzo line created on January 23 and continued the oscillation around the 13 day moving average. So, once again, immediate signals for sentiment cannot be strong until the average is left behind, but a close near the lows places our focus on the downside.
