Overview of technical charts on November 28
As a result of high speculative activity, EUR/USD touched the resistance level of 1.0500. However, the success of the buyers did not last long as the volume of short positions increased rapidly. So, the pair reversed to the downside.
GBP/USD accelerated its decline after closely approaching the psychological level of 1.2000. Then traders accumulated more short positions so that the pair began a retracement. Notably, bears failed to hold below the key level of 1.1950. As a result, the price bounced off this level and moved above 1.2000.

Today, traders may focus on the UK lending market which is projected to fall. The number of mortgage approvals may turn out to be 63K compared to 66.8 a month ago. The value of mortgage lending is predicted to be just 5.7 billion pounds versus 6.1 billion pounds recorded last year. This means that the UK lending market is declining and is dragging down the real estate market with it. The industrial sector is also suffering against this backdrop.
Therefore, the pound sterling may come under bearish pressure.

In this situation, if the price settles firmly below 1.1950, this will serve as a technical signal for an extended downtrend. If so, the pound may easily drop to the level of 1.1750.
As for the upward scenario, the quote needs to return to the area of 1.2150 to activate the uptrend. This price move is very likely to lead the pair to the local high.
