GBPUSD Weekly Outlook The British Pound is expected to trade at 1.28 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 1.24 in 12 months time.
GBP/USD’s decline from 1.3267 extended lower last week but lost momentum ahead of 1.2932 support. Initial bias is neutral this week first. Near term outlook stays cautiously bearish as long as 1.3111 resistance holds and deeper fall is expected. As noted before, price actions from 1.1946 are seen as a corrective pattern and could have completed at 1.3267. Break of 1.2932 will affirm this bearish case and target 1.2588 key near term support for confirmation. However, break of 1.3111 resistance will turn bias back to the upside for retesting 1.3267 high instead.
In the bigger picture, overall, price actions from 1.1946 medium term low are seen as a corrective pattern. While further rise cannot be ruled out, larger outlook remains bearish as long as 1.3444 key resistance holds. Down trend from 1.7190 (2014 high) is expected to resume later after the correction completes. And break of 1.2588 will indicate that such down trend is resuming.
