Analysis of the divergence of GBP / USD on February 26. A bearish divergence inclines the pound to fall again

As a result, on February 26, the pair continues to grow in the direction of the next correction level of 100.0% - 1.3300.

Closing quotes below the Fibo level of 76.4% will similarly work in favor of the US currency.
