British GDP results outlook
The UK economy contracted more than expected in the third quarter, indicating that the country has slipped into a recession likely to last until 2024. The Office for National Statistics reported that gross domestic product fell 0.3% in the three months to September, more than the previously forecast 0.2% fall.
The GBPUSD has declined after almost two months of growth. The price came closer to the 1.2040 support level. 50- and 100-period MAs are ready to make a dead cross, which is a bearish sign. If the price gains the bullish power, the price might return to the previous resistance levels – 1.2290 and 1.2400. In case of a further decrease, the price might drop to 1.1900.
