British Pound Bounces Between 20 and 50 day Averages
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The GBPUSD stages an impressive comeback yesterday, bouncing from the 50 day average and climbing back to 16400. Still, I am looking lower towards support from the line that extends off of the December and March lows at 16210 (increases about 10 pips per day (4/18 low is at 16165). I am not convinced that the recent top is ‘the top’ as per the lack of divergence with momentum at the high so weakness into 16165-16200 may provide a buying opportunity.
