In an alternative scenario, and after the breakdown of the support level 1.4100, GBP / USD may decline to the support levels 1.4034 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart and the lower line of the ascending channel on the daily chart), 1.4006, 1.3970 (Fibonacci level 38.2%), and after them breakout - to the levels 1.3730 (ЕМА144 on the daily chart), 1.3600 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart).
The breakout of support levels 1.3300 (ЕМА200 on the weekly chart), 1.3210 (Fibonacci level 23.6%) will increase the risks of a resumption of the global bearish trend in GBP / USD and may provoke a deeper decline towards support levels 1.2250, 1.2085, 1.2000 (Fibonacci level 0%).
A breakdown of the short-term support level 1.4153 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart) may become the first signal for the implementation of the alternative scenario.
