GBP/USD up move could lose traction

Cable’s uptick yesterday saw a small follow through towards the 1.3260 region earlier in the session today, although the move appears to have run out of steam for the time being.

The recent up move in spot was amidst rising open interest, although by insignificant levels, while volume has been decreasing practically non-stop since Friday, hinting at the idea that a potential top could be in place, at least in the near term.
