Focus Chart of the Day: GBP/USD

Price & Time: Key Day For the Pound

The recovery in GBP/USD failed on Friday near the 50% retracement of the late February-April decline. As aggressive as the reversal from 1.5050 has been we are not sure it necessarily means that the primary trend is trying to re-assert itself just yet. Short-term cyclical analysis suggests that the next 24 to 36 hours should prove key in determining if that is what is really going on. Continued weakness past today (ie. a lower daily close on Wednesday), for instance, would be a strong sign that the downtrend in the pound has indeed started anew. However, a higher close on Wednesday would throw a wrench in the negative cyclical argument and warn that Cable has a few more days and possibly even a few more weeks of upside left before the primary trend re-asserts itself.
