-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.


-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: The first target was reached at 1.5960. The stop on the rest is trailed to 1.6060 (above first day of month high) with a 1.5540 limit.

LEVELS: 1.5750 1.5876 1.5924 | 1.5998 1.6040 1.6077
