British Pound Short Term Head and Shoulders Possibly Developing
240 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele
Near term, Cable may be carving out a head and shoulders pattern. Resistance extends to 16200/50. Price is respecting its 50 day average but I do expect a breakdown as the larger pattern is a triangle from the 2008 low. Weakness from the March high is viewed as wave D and should eventually drop below 15000. Interest rate differential and a proprietary indicator that compares interest rate differential trend and price trend favor the downside as does COT positioning. A break of the 50 day average would shift focus to the support line that extends off of the May and December lows, which intersects 15750 (pivot low) on Friday.
