    "More investors are starting to believe that the Federal Reserve could delay lift-off until 2016 and this view is weighing heavily on the currency, this could be another painful week for the greenback." 
    - BK Asset Management (based on CNBC)

    Pair's Outlook 
    The Cable appears to have entered a consolidation period, as it keeps gravitating towards the 200-day SMA. This trend is yet to be confirmed by the Sterling's possible decline towards the monthly PP around 1.53 today. A correction is likely to take place, but a number of fundamentals could strengthen the Pound over the day, thus, extending the GBP/USD's rally. Immediate resistance lies above 1.54, represented by the weekly R1 and 55-day SMA. A rebound is possible due to the pair being supported by a strong cluster and a weaker US Dollar on increased Fed rate hike uncertainty. 

    Traders' Sentiment 
    More than a half (61%) of traders retain a positive outlook towards the Cable, while 57% of orders are to buy the GBP (down from 60%).
