GBPUSD on Thursday dropped -0.17% to 1.26946. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.

Updated daily direction for GBPUSD looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Thursday trading session.

Looking ahead for the day, immediate support level is at S1 1.26709 with break below could see further selling pressure towards S2 at 1.26471. To the upside, with the current momentum bearish, we prefer to look at breakout of the recent daily high of 1.27466 as a potential indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below 1.26850 would indicate selling pressure.

For the week to-date, take note that GBPUSD is mixed as compared to the prior week.
