GBP/USD Trades to YTD High but Closes Beneath
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
-GBPUSD is doing what GBPUSD does. Since 12/10 the rate has traded to a YTD high, 3 week low, and another YTD high. The move to a new high today is suspicious given the inability of EURUSD to attain a YTD high.
-Weekly action engulfs the prior 2 weeks already. We should at least be able to use this current week’s range as a point of reference to work from moving forward.
Trading Strategy: Flat and happy about that.
