Technical Analysis: GBPUSD drops below 10-day SMA as key Brexit decision looms
GBPUSD remains pressured for the third consecutive day as Brexit woes firm up during the last hours of closing the deal. Neither the UK nor the EU seems to have any inclination of going easy on the others, which in turn increases the odds of a no-deal departure of the ex-neighbors. Technically, the quote drops below 10-day SMA and the RSI has recently started reversing from the overbought conditions. As a result, sellers have a larger room to the south wherein the October high, close to 1.3175, appears to be the initially strong support ahead of the 1.3100 round-figure. Though, any further weakness past-1.3100 will be tamed by an ascending trend line from June 29, at 1.3035 now.
Meanwhile, a daily closing past-10-day SMA level of 1.3378 needs to cross the 1.3400 threshold to challenge September's peak surrounding 1.3485. In a case where the overbought RSI fails to disappoint the GBPUSD bulls past-1.3485, the latest high of 1.3538 and March 2018 low near 1.3710 will become their landmarks.
