British Pound Offers Range Trading Nirvana
GBPUSD – Forex trading crowds have been quick to flip directions on the British Pound/US Dollar pair as of late, giving us a mixed bias on the range-bound currency pair. Our SSI ratio currently stands at -1.2; there are 1.2 traders short for every one long. It is certainly worth noting that this is a substantial shift from last week; long interest jumped 37% while shorts fell 33%. Yet we would ideally see stronger conviction before taking a strong GBPUSD trading bias.
Major price congestion levels mark support near $1.5650, while resistance stands at recent highs of $1.5880. A break of either would likely point to further rallies or declines. In the meantime, however, we favor trading GBPUSD ranges and placing stops above highs and below the lows.
