GBP/USD Drops into 20 Day Midpoint; Channel at 1.5150
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
FOREXAnalysis: “The GBPUSD hasn’t quite reached previously mentioned levels of interest, which include 1.5460 (2 equal legs from the low), 1.5500 (top of former congestion) and 1.5605 (50% retracement). Viewed in the context of the bearish break from a 4 year triangle in February, we should be looking to align with the downtrend after a month of gains. Friday’s inside day setup was resolved to the downside which offers a level (1.5411) to operate from the bearish side.” Left in 3 waves the GBPUSD remains vulnerable near term. Trendline support comes in at about 1.5150 on Thursday. 1.5274 is resistance.
FOREX Trading Strategy: Stay short, target half at 1.5160.
LEVELS: 1.5067 1.5120/50 1.5189 1.5274 1.5330 1.5384
