With experiencing another decline on Thursday, the GBP/USD currency pair inched closer to the ascending channel's support line. Technically, we should still see a rebound, as the trend-line is reinforced by the 55-day SMA and managed to provide the Cable with sufficient bullish momentum to keep advancing since March. However, daily technical studies are now giving bearish signals, indicating that a breakout might be imminent.. On the other hand, the two-year down-trend has not yet been retested, thus, the immediate support might hold today and eventually cause the Sterling to rebound, leading it back towards the 1.47 major level.
