Forex Flash: Gilts hover near 20-day MA and support – RBS

According to Technical Markets Strategist Dmytro Bondar at RBS, “Gilts have stayed in a range between 20-day MA and 115.75 support level – a range breakout will be likely to determine further direction. There are no strong direction signals from the chart. However, as cross-market signals suggest, there is more likelihood of an upside breakout, which means a break of the 20-day moving average. As it was the main limiting factor for the market, a push higher would be likely to trigger a strong move to 117.20 onto possibly 117.78. Alternatively, a downside break would be a signal for a move to 115.67/51.”

A sustained break and close above 97.00 is required to confirm bulls back in play, as completion of double-bottom reversal pattern, would re-focus key barriers at 98.22 (30 January peak) and 98.54 (Fib 61.8% expansion of rally from 84.05, 07 Nov 2012 low).” writes Slobodan Drvenica, an analyst at Windsor Brokers Ltd.
