For this week's trades, GBP/USD, GBP/JPY and GBP/CHF as not only did GBP/USD and GBP/CHF close at 1.2926 but GBP/USD and GBP/CHF fits into my NZD analysis as currency prices serve as support and resistance levels against each other.

Big line breaks for lower GBP/USD, GBP/CHF and GBP/JPY are located at 1.2759, 1.2681 and 138.62. See GBP/CHF 1.2681 holds GBP/USD at 1.2759 and 1.3862 GBP/JPY trades far above both GBP/USD and GBP/CHF.

GBP/CHF must move down in order for GBP/USD to trade lower. As GBP/CHF trades lower then former GBP/CHF supports translates to GBP/USD supports on the way down. GBP/JPY becomes the follower to GBP/CHF and GBP/USD.

If GBP/CHF fails to move down then GBP/USD is well supported by GBP/CHF and won't trade lower. This translates to GBP/JPY non ability to trade lower and this situation serves for all GBP pairs.

GBP/CHF contains higher ranges than GBP/USD  by design and GBP/JPY contains higher ranges than GBP/USD and GBP/CHF. GBP/USD is stuck dead center as a middle range currency pair and requires movement from GBP/JPY or GBP/CHF in order to provide direction.

 Actual commentary should state GBP/USD moved higher to GBP/CHF X Point or lower at GBP/CHF support because mathematically, supports and resistance points are perfect. Applies to targets as perfect mathematical points. But then nobody would understand actual commentary.

A break of GBP/USD 1.2759 targets 1.2610 on a break of 1.2685. GBP/CHF below 1.2681 targets 1.,2509 on a break of 1.2595. And GBP/JPY below 138.62 targets 136.47 on a break at 137.54.

Overall GBP strategy this week is short at higher levels.
