Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

GBPUSD focus is on the May (and 2012) high at 16301, pivot high from August 2011 at 16453 and then the trendline that extends off of the 2009 and 2011 highs. That line crosses roughly 16497 this week. 16174-16205 is now support. Like all USD crosses, expect USD strength to prove corrective. The trend is up against 16062.

LEVELS: 16130 16174 16205 16301 16453 16618
