GBP/USD Tests Key Trend Line


GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat

Prices are testing resistance at 1.5576, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, a barrier reinforced by a falling trend line set from mid-December 2012 (now at 1.5550). A break above this targets the 100% level at 1.5722. Near-term support is at 1.5485, the 61.8% Fib, with a reversal beneath that eyeing the 50% expansion at 1.5412. We will wait to see how the pair resolves itself at the trend line and look to establish a trade on that basis.
