GBPUSD: Remains In Consolidation Mode

As long as 1.2670 resistance holds on a daily closing basis, the GBPUSD remains neutral with risk to the downside. A failure to hold above 1.2670 level on a daily closing basis could mean a return to 1.2615 level where a cut will open 1.2559 level. Below 1.2559 restores the downside momentum and opens 1.2480 level, further down, support comes at 1.2402 level.
