-The Jan 2nd close at 1.6252 nailed the high so far, which came in at 1.6259. Resistance is reinforced by a 4 year resistance line.
-A head and shoulders top has been confirmed. Underside of the neckline (red) is now estimated resistance along with former lows from 1.6000-1.6030.
Trading Strategy: Market has found a trendline and channel support confluence. This is a good place for a rally to begin. Looking to short 1.6030 with a 1.6075 stop. Target areas are 1.5715/50 and 1.5605. GBPAUD and GBPNZD shorts at 1.6950 and 1.9300 have been triggered. Stops are moved to 1.6960 and 1.9360. I’m in this for a break and am not setting hard limits just yet.
LEVELS: 1.5840 1.5875/85 1.5940 | 1.5985 1.6005 1.6031
