. GBP/USD - 1.6013 ... The British pound tracked euro's movement closely y'day as cable met renewed selling at 1.6075 in Europe n then extended recent decline to a low of 1.5992 in part due to active cross selling in sterling (eur/gbp rose fm 0.9134 to 0.9163) b4 recovering to 1.6033 in late NY.

. Looking at the hourly chart, as cable has remained under pressure, suggesting as long as y'day's high of 1.6075 holds, the decline fm last Wed's 15- month high of 1.6380 may extend marginally twds previous daily sup at 1.5962 (Nov 28 low), however, bullish convergences on hourly oscillators shud limit downside to 1.5944, being 50% projection fm 1.6380-1.6010 measured fm 1.6129, n bring a much-needed strg rebound later today or tom. On the upside, a breach of 1.6075 wud confirm a temp. low is made n may bring rebound to 1.6129 res, abv wud encourage for further gain to 1.6232 (61.8% r of 1.6380-1.5992).

. Today, selling on intra-day recovery in anticipation of such marginal weakness is recommended n position traders may turn long there for prospect of a much-needed strg rebound. Only below 1.5944 wud risk weakness to 1.5900.
