Morgan Stanley: GBP/USD targets $1.5860
Morgan Stanley opened a SELL LIMIT order on GBP/USD from $1.6270 with a target of $1.5860 and a stop at $1.6350.
"GBPUSD is set to come under further downward pressure, and we look for a decline to extend the major downtrend," analysts forecast. "Some political uncertainty has also started to build in the UK and so could pose a risk going into the elections next year. We will be watching the PMI releases in particular this week".
From the technical viewpoint, MS believes a move below $1.6165 will extend the downside towards $1.6050. In the medium term, they maintain a target of $1.5860.
