The pair was under strong selling pressure during Thursday’s session after the BoE’s interest rate decision. Technically, GBP/USD is trading below the 200 SMA and it’s on the way to test the support level of 1.3037 because the lows from October 27th gave up to the bears’ force. To the upside, a break above 1.3161 should expose the 1.3309 level.
H1 chart’s resistance levels: 1.3309 / 1.3437
