The GBPUSD reached a high last week of 1.38983. Today, the price reached a high of 1.38877. Going back to is 11, the high prices reach 1.38872. The inability to move above those swing highs and extend the range has led to a rotation back to the downside over the last few hours.

The move to the downside has also moved below a swing area between 1.38715 and 1.38774. That area will now be close intraday resistance. Stay below it keeps the sellers more in control (close risk for sellers).
