British Pound Resistance Zone is 16400-16485
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
“The GBPUSD has bounced from the support line that extends off of the May 2010 and December 2010 lows. It is possible that the rally to 16746 completed a 3 wave rally from the May 2010 low and that weakness from there is wave 1 of the next bear wave. I like shorting a rally into 16400/80 (50%-61.8% retracement) in early June (look for a high in early June).” The rally from 16057 is probably wave A of the expected correction. Weakness into 16210/75 would probably complete wave B before a test of 16400/85 completes the advance.
