FOREXAnalysis: The GBPUSD has slowly dropped since the 8/21 high at 1.5717. Remember, the rally would consist of 2 equal legs from the July low at 1.5722, which is also the close of the high day in June. Price found support today at the 20 day average and 8/7 large volume day close. “If price trades above the June high of 1.5750, then the 61.8% retracement of the Jan-March decline comes in at 1.5788 and the November 2012 low at 1.5826.”

FOREX Trading Strategy: The GBPUSD has led the EURUSD at most turns in 2013….so the GBPUSD top might be ‘safer’ than the EURUSD top.

LEVELS: 1.5422 1.5481 1.5507 1.5611 1.5655 1.5690
