Technical Analysis

GBP/USD was struggling for most of Monday and it does not seem that the negative sentiment has gone. It is currently relying on momentum support at the RSI 34%, which it has touched twice this month, although the prices continued to decline. Expect bearishness to remain in play if that support level is broken. On the flip side, expect the sentiment to change if we see the momentum increase by 43% on the one-hour view this week.
