Reviewing GBPUSD on daily timeframe, we can see today’s gap and price sliding below 1.20 and creating a potential double bottom (noted with yellow cycles).  Important resistances on 1.212 and then 1.23. However, the trend remains bearish and selling opportunities may occur while price goes higher.

 5EMA=Purple, 21EMA=Gold, 55EMA=Green, 200SMA= Blue)

As usual, heading lower on hourly timeframe, prices need to stay above the grey zone in order to have an immediate uptrend momentum. Next major resistance on the blue zone 1.212 – 1.215. It’s obvious that the pair is in downtrend so buyers need to be cautious and use tight stops.
