Technical Analysis 

  • The slide continues with GBP/USD as a slew of weaker than expected economic data that came out at 0930 GMT on Monday brought sellers out in droves. The psychological support level that traders will be watching is 1.2900. We could see the slide bottom out if prices could stay above this support level.
