GBP/USD DAILY CHART – DOUBLE TOP IN PLAY?

From a technical perspective, GBP/USD could be at risk of an extended push lower as prices carve out a Double Top reversal formation with a rejection of key psychological resistance at the 1.3500 round figure mark.

1.3300 level could be an immediate barrier for the price before reaching confluent support at the November swing low (1.3110) and ascending trend-line extending from the May low. Breaking below would probably result in prices closing the gap and challenging support at the March high (1.3200). Next, would probably trigger a more extensive correction and bring the key support at 1.2910 into focus.

Some resistance awaits at 1.34, a level that capped GBP/USD in November. It is followed by 1.3480, a swing high, which was seen last week, and finally by the 2020 peak of 1.3500 critical round figure mark
