Cable remains constructive on Monday and focusing new 2021 high 1.3757, following last week’s strong downside rejection (1.3565) which formed a bear-trap pattern, signaling strong bids and keeping larger uptrend (recently paused) in play.

Near-term bias is expected to remain with bulls as long as price action continues to move above rising 20DMA (1.3673) which underpins the action since mid-December.
Weaker dollar on disappointing US jobs data in January that deflated optimism about accelerating US economic recovery contributes to pound’s strength.
