GBP/USD: technical analysis

Current trendо,  Оn the daily chart, the GBP/USD pair continues to trade within the wide downward channel. The price reversed from its lower border, reached 1.2695 (Murrey [0/8], the middle line of Bollinger bands) but could not rise further. Now a new decline to 1.2573 (Murrey [–1/8]) and 1.2500 (the lower border of Bollinger bands) is expected, which is indicated by the downward reversal of Stochastic and the downward movement of Bollinger bands. The key “bullish” level is 1.2695. In case of its breakout, the price may grow to the levels of 1.2817 (Murrey [1/8]) and, possibly, to 1.2940 (Murrey [2/8], Fibonacci 23.6%, the upper border of Bollinger bands).

In general, in the near future, a more gradual decrease in price slowed down due to the New Year holidays, seems more likely.
