On Tuesday last week we covered gold which didn’t have a great week last week as it finished falling sharply away from the resistance at $1300. To start the week it surged higher to its highest level in a month reaching and testing the key level of $1300.

GBPUSD - Drops to the Three Month Low Near 1.28 on PM’s Brexit Deal

 

 
In the last week or so the GBPUSD has fallen sharply from the key level at 1.32 down to a three month low near 1.28. It had previously done well to rally from a two month low up to the 1.32 level before sellers jumped in and turned the sterling away strongly. It spent around six weeks or so falling lower from a nine month high near 1.34 back down to the two month low before the rally, with that medium term trend now being extended with the recent decline. There are few signs of any support presently and even if it does rally a little, it faces possible further resistance at the 1.32 level again.
