From a technical point of view, on a daily chart, GBP/USD has posted a pull back on a former rising trend line before facing further weakness as it stands below its 50-day moving average (in blue).

The nearest support would be set at 1.1950 and a second one would be set at set at horizontal support at 1.1685 in extension.
