Ilya Spivak

GBP/USD Technical Analysis - Prices broke below a critical support cluster marked by two alternative rising trend linesset from mid-January 2009 (one based against the May 20 2010 low and the other against the June 1 2012 one) and took out the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion (1.5571). Sellers are now challenging the 50% level at 1.5488, with a further push lower eyeing the 61.8% Fib at 1.5403. The 1.5571 level has been recast as resistance. We continue to hold short.
