GBPUSD Classic Technical Report 08.10.2012

GBPUSD Classic Technical Report 08.10.2012

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Prices remain locked in a tight consolidation range. The pair is testing resistance in the 1.5638-62 area marked by a former horizontal support and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break higher exposing the 1.5769-84 region. Near-term support is at a rising trend line set from the June 1 low, now at 1.5520, with a push below that initially exposing 1.5484. Current positioning doesn’t offer an actionable trade setup and we will stand aside until a clear directional bias reemerges.
