GBP/USD Firm as Measured Level at 1.7300 Looms
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
-After breaking the trendline that had held since November, GBPUSD continues to make fresh highs. The 2009 high (and 2005 low) of 1.7042 has given way as has the line that extends off of the February and May highs. The next level of interest is probably where the decline from the 2013 low would consist of 2 equal waves at 1.7300. Below 1.7000 is needed to shift near term trend.
LEVELS: 1.7063 1.7095 1.7118 | 1.7200 1.7247 1.7300
