- GBP/USD below support, acting weak
- GBP/JPY bouncing off support but could weaken
- DXY broke short-term corrective pattern
The GBP/USD is below a trend-line and the most recent swing-low, putting in position to sink further. This morning it tested former support, now resistance, and thus far turning down. Staying below ~12540 will be important for the bearish outlook. If selling pressure reasserts itself we could see a move down towards the 122/12100-area.

GBP/USD 4-hr Chart (at pivotal spot)
GBP/JPY is bouncing off a lower parallel, but like GBP/USD it could be in trouble here soon if it can’t hold a bid. A decline below 13175 will put the pair in position to drop further and have it below the lower parallel.

DXY broke a short-term corrective pattern within a trend, which implies that we should see lower levels ahead. There is a trend-line from 2018 below around the 95.80 level that could keep the Dollar from falling too far. But nevertheless the near-term path of least resistance looks lower.
