    "In that sense, it might be argued the pound's latest decline has been a Goldilocks depreciation – not too big and not too small, but provided that occurs in a relatively orderly manner, and that the MPC is prepared to look through the inflationary consequences as it did after 2008, it should not be anything to fear."

    Pair's Outlook
    The Pound remained under pressure on Wednesday, having edged lower, with volatility stretching out to the 1.28 mark. Nevertheless, the immediate support level, namely the weekly S2 at 1.2899, was preserved, suggesting that the Sterling could undergo a small correction today. In case bulls take over the market, gains are expected to be limited by the 1.31 major level, also reinforced by the weekly S1. At the same time, a breach of the immediate support is likely to open the door for sharper losses, with the second support area located only around 1.2630, represented by the weekly S3, the monthly S1 and the Bollinger band.
