GBP/USD Technical Analysis: poised to challenge YTD lows

• Extends last week’s rejection slide from 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the 1.3447-1.3102 downfall and was further weighed down by resurgent US Dollar demand.
• Today’s sharp fall could further be attributed to some fresh technical selling below the 1.3200 handle, support marked by a short-term descending trend-channel formation on the 1-hourly chart.
• Finds some support near 1.3150 static level amid oversold conditions on the said chart, albeit now seems vulnerable to extend the downfall back towards challenging the 1.3100 round figure mark.
