-GBPUSD broke the trendline that originates at the July low on Tuesday. The line connects the 7/9 and 8/2 lows and crosses through several days in mid-October. This development is an early sign that the entire advance is complete.

-The underside of the mentioned trendline is now estimated resistance along with 1.6115/45 (former support).

-Weakness below 1.5893 would confirm a double top. The measured objective would be 1.5527 (width of range subtracted from 1.5893).

Trading Strategy: Stay bearish for a return to the near term range lows (1.5950s) and maybe more (if price breaks 1.5890, then mentioned target is in play).

LEVELS: 1.5893 1.5960 1.6007 | 1.6077 1.6115 1.6162
