This morning, at 2 am Eastern Time, the UK’s Office for National Statistics reported that month-over-month Gross Domestic Product (GDP), a key measure of economic output, had failed to meet forecasts. While markets and analysts had expected 0.3% or 0.4% growth, the reality was a disappointing 0.2%. Though not a contraction, it is yet another in a long list of unfortunate national events ranging from double-digit annual inflation to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
With newly elected Prime Minister Liz Truss taking the reigns at a time of great economic suffering, and a still-wary Bank of England unable to halt supply-side woes, there is little certainty to be found for the Pound Sterling. With fundamentals, institutional sentiment, and technical analysis pointing towards continued GBP bearish momentum, let’s explore which GBP pairs have the best selling potential.

According to the EdgeFinder, A1 Trading’s market scanner software, the three most promising pairs to sell are all GBP pairs. All three are experiencing months-long downtrends, with recent bullish price action retesting key levels in the form of resistance. Here they are, along with their respective EdgeFinder signals:
