GBP/USD Little Changed on Day…and Year (Year Open at 1.5554)
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
-“A 6 month bottoming pattern (head and shoulders) has completed (target 1.70+) but the rate does face resistance (within an uptrend) now so be aware of a shakeout (lower) following this breakout.”
-The ‘shakeout’ turned into a mini downtrend but the rate has turned up from above slope support (which was at 1.5300), which is bullish. The seeds for a larger advance are sewn but beware of near term resistance around 1.57. Favor the upside whilst above 1.5449.
