The GBP/USD pair trades in a downward trend on 4H chart due to the announcement that the UK GDP fell again in the fourth quarter of 2011. The UK financial stability remains highly uncertain. The European debt problems will continue to exert pressure on the British economy. Considering the technical levels, the pound is approaching the bullish channel near the weekly pivot point; if there is a break of this trend line, it will change the scene for the next session. Moreover, a rebound above the weekly PPV around 1.5853 would be a good point to buy with targets at 1.6000 The MACD indicator is in oversold area and is showing possible consolidation.
