The cable managed to pause its 3-day falling streak. It gained 40 pips at yesterday's session. The cable lost 1.3% this week. The pair breached the 50Wsma, but managed to hold above this level. After a strong rally, the British pound looks weak against the greenback. Last Friday, we alert that the cable was approaching the strong supply zone between 1.5930 and 1.6040. The monthly resistance is seen at 1.5935 50Msma. The strong support is found at 1.5800 (previous swing high), 1.5700 (previous swing lower high), and strong support base formed at 1.5440. The level of 1.5667 is done now.
The weekly support is found at 1.5680 50Wsma. It's a litmus test for pound bulls to close above 1.5680. A daily close below this level will lead to a re-test of 1.5620 and 1.5500.

In the four-hour chart, support is found at 1.5640, 1.5590, and 1.5525. Resistance is seen at 1.5770 and 1.5810. Until the cable trades below 1.5770, bears are likely to hold the grip.
