GBP/USD daily chart
On the daily chart, GBP/USD has recovered from the yearly lows on August 20 at 1.3602 to touch the high at around 1.3768.
The formation of a big red candlestick in the previous session suggests bears are in full swing.
If price breaks the session’s low, it could move lower toward the 1.3650 horizontal support level followed by the low of August 23 at 1.3612.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator still points at the underlying bearish sentiment. Any downtick in the MACD could bring more selling opportunities.
