Yes I see it. After sitting on the fence most of last week, I bought 5x100K lots at 1.3260 on Friday, and I'm betting on this heading down to 1.30 later this week. Maybe I take some profit around 1.31 if it seems like it will not break below, we will see.

GBPUSD: Loses Upside Momentum.GBPUSD: With the pair losing upside steam the past week (see daily chart), more decline is envisaged in the new week. On the downside, support lies at the 1.3100 level where a break will turn attention to the 1.3050 level. Further down, support lies at the 1.3000 level. Below here will set the stage for more weakness towards the 1.2950 level. Conversely, resistance stands at the 1.3200 levels with a turn above here allowing more strength to build up towards the 1.3250 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 1.3300 level followed by the 1.3350 level. On the whole, GBPUSD threatens further downside pressure having lost upside momentum..Strategy: Sell at 1.3135, Stop loss at 1.3204, Price target at 1.3035 & 1.2985..JUST MY HUMBLE OPNION. DO YOUR OWN DD
