On Thursday GBP/USD decreased insignificantly with 70 pips. The Cable depreciated from 1.5632 to 1.5561 Thursday, in line with the negative money flow sentiment at around -12%, closing the day at 1.5585.

On the 1 hour chart the upward channel has slowed down, while on the 3 hour chart quotes bounced down of the upper limit of the wide trading scope. First resistance is yesterday's peak at 1.5632. Break above it should extend the bullish movement further towards 1.5755. The nearest support level is Thursday's bottom at 1.5561. Going below it should extend British pound's reduction further down towards next downward objective 1.5440.

Today is UK GDP at 8:30 GMT.

Quotes are moving above the 20 and bellow the 50 EMA on the 1 hour chart, indicating short term bullish and medium term bearish pressure. The value of the RSI indicator is neutral and hesitant, MACD is negative and tranquil, while CCI has crossed up the 100 line on the 1 hour chart, giving over all neutral signals.

Technical resistance levels: 1.5632 1.5755 1.5890

Technical support levels: 1.5561 1.5440 1.5306
