-GBPUSD made an outside day reversal on 1/2 after poking above 1.6600. Since 2011, the market has reverted to the mean early in the year.

-Bigger picture, GBPUSD has broken above the line that extends off of the 2009 and 2011 highs. A significant breakout is possible but the mentioned outside day reversal along with a weekly key reversal last week warns of a top. Watch for resistance on Friday in the mid 1.6500s.
