GBP/USD continues to move in a straight-line
The steady straight-line move continues here, with the 50-hour simple moving average (SMA) ($1.4433) continuing to act as resistance to any upside move, however modest.
Bears will still be looking for a move towards $1.4352, below which we will see significant selling momentum develop. If the price clears $1.4433, then upside targets lie around $1.4463 and then $1.4560.
