Despite sterling's selloff to 1.3027 in early Oct, subsequent rally to 1.3550 in Dec, then 1.3614 last Wed suggests correction fm 1.3659 has ended n re-test of said res would be seen next .

Having said that, last Wed's fall to 1.3495, then 1.3458 y'day would yield more choppy trading b4 moving higher. Only below 1.3458 risks 1.3428 but 1.3390 would hold.

  • Today, y'day's rally fm 1.3458 suggests correction fm 1.3614 has ended there n upside bias remains for gain to 1.3586, break would encourage for re- test of 1.3614 but abv needed to retain bullishness for further headway twd 2017 top at 1.3659.
