From a technical perspective, there are few factors to halt the decline for GBP/USD at this point. The next significant support level is around the October low of 1.2000-1.2050, which is still approximately 300 pips away, so there’s a lot of flash for GBP sellers to chew.

Therefore, this will likely continue unless there is a notable shift in sentiment towards the Buck which doesn’t seem likely, with the FED postponing interest rate cuts, probably in September. So, it will be challenging to argue against further downside for this forex pair. If sterling fails to stabilize even in the face of a more positive risk sentiment today, it doesn’t bode well for its short-term prospects, especially considering the current chart pattern.
