    GBP/USDMonday is scheduled to be a quite important day for the UK.The pound fell against USD after BOE Governor Carney's speech. Last week, the cable fell 4 consecutive days with 2 steep fall days. The cable grounded towards the lowest level since mid-2013. The cable made a low at 1.47000. We advised, in case the price close below the level of 1.4810, it can extend its fall another 500 pips. The cross EUR/GBP is also weighing on the pound. The eurozone is the UK's major trading partner. The UK is slowly approaching its general election scheduled for May. Market participants expect the pound to get under a downward pressure. Today, the cable opened on a bullish note. We recommend fresh selling below 1.4738 for risky traders and safe traders can start selling below 1.4700 with target at 1.4580 in the near term and at 1.4350 in the medium term. We expect the pair to hit 1.4350 or 1.4200 before May/June. After the UK's election we expect the bottom will be formed. We recommended selling below 1.4800 at the session on Friday. The cable made a low at 1.4700. Intraday resistance is seen at 1.4765 and 1.4850. Weekly resistance is seen at 1.4980 and 1.5030. Until price closes below 1.5030, bearish view remain in play.
