GBPUSD Technical Analysis:

GBPUSD was in an uptrend and had been trading inside a bullish channel forming higher highs and lows. The price recently broke below the bullish channel, followed by breaking below the 50MA. 

While the price is heading down, it is taking support from the level of $1.26274. This level was resistance before until the price broke above it. The overall trend still looks bearish as the price is above the 200MA. The crossing of 50MA shows the price may trade in a range for the short term.

The RSI line is at 41.55, showing a slight inclination towards the oversold sentiment. As the price is trading between $1.26274 and $1.29509 support and resistance, traders should wait for the break of any of these levels and confluences for trade confirmation.

The RSI level is at 42.71, showing neutral overbought and oversold conditions. Currently, the price is above the 200MA and crossing below the 50MA, indicating long-term bullish and short-term bearish trends. However, the price may go into a consolidation state.

After forming a high at $1.12412 on around 18th July 2023, the price is now at a level of $1.09327 and has recently formed a shooting star candle showing the market has more bears than bulls. However, the market is bullish until the major low level of $1.08365 is breached below, forming consecutive lower highs and lows.
