Forex Flash: GBP/USD looks bullish ahead – Nomura (Barcelona) - Nomura Strategist Saeed Amen has taken a look at GBP/USD from a purely technical perspective.

Looking at a daily chart, Amen notes that spot is down on the week but he has flipped to a bullish view. He sees that RSI has shuffled sideways for a number of days, suggesting that it is close to reaching a floor. Further, he sees that bandwidth expansion has been rapid and is reaching levels where it has historically declined. Amen finishes by writing, “This suggests it is getting closer to a retracement within the range. Furthermore, today's candlestick is a hammer, which is often a sign of a low. Our target is 1.5900 (200D SMA).”
