GBP/USD Looks to Paring Losses

- advertisement -

The GBPUSD, after losing the 1.2960 handle, is looking to pare losses. Price action is attempting to retreat after slipping to a two-month low.

Any gains will be testing the resistance level near 1.2960 in the short term. We expect price to remain subdued as long as this level is not breached.
