Chart of the Day: GBP/USD

Focus: FOREX

Price action on the four-hour GBP/USD chart, as shown, is currently languishing in somewhat of a sideways consolidation, much like other major currency pairs. As of Friday morning (New York session), price has been hugging a relatively well-defined uptrend support line (in green) after falling down off of a significant downtrend resistance line (in red). This downtrend line should continue to serve as resistance in the event of a pronounced bounce up off the current uptrend support. In the event of a breakdown of the current consolidation, below the uptrend support line, key immediate support to the downside resides around the 1.8260-1.8270 zone.
