British Pound Support at 16300
240 Minute Bars
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.” Cable has soared over the last week to the tune of 500 pips. The rally is sharp and impulsive in manner but could compose wave c of a flat (not shown). Near term, look lower into 16300.
Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – 0, 2, 3
