Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

The GBPUSD dropped below the December 2010 low and as low as 15328 before surging over 300 pips. The extent of the advance does warrant bullish consideration but the rally is not yet in 5 waves. In any case, price has reached a level that should provide resistance (former support at 15705). The resistance zone extends to 15867 and the center of the zone is reinforced by a gap left open from earlier this month in the mid 15700s.
