Technical Analysis


The U.K. has entered a crisis and pandemic in bad shape, as investors began to lay Brexit’s uncertainty risks. Until now, trade conditions have not been agreed between London and Brussels, which causes concern. Therefore, the Bank of England forecasts that the country’s economy will fall by more than 20% in the second quarter seem quite real.

Against this background, we can assume that the regulator will continue to lower the rate, which will become the main trigger for the depreciation of GBP/USD. The daily timeframe of the chart also indicates a likely weakening of quotes, since the price is under pressure from the downward resistance level.
