Holds the 100 hour MA above
The GBPUSD is making a play to the downside - trading at new session lows. The range is still very narrow at 60 pips so there is room to roam. A lower trend line and low from yesterday are being tested now. A higher trend line at the 1.2206 level is now close resistance for the sellers. Stay below and the bears remain in control.

The 1.2170 and then 1.2155 are the next targets on a break. The 1.2155 is the underside of the broken trend line. At the low correction yesterday in the NY session, that line was tested and held support.
