Key Quotes

“GBP/USD last week eroded the 1.5874/55 October low and the November 2013 low and fell to new lows for the year, it has held over the 1.5781 38.2% retracement of the move from 2008. This new low has not been confirmed by the daily or weekly RSI, which has diverged and we are concerned that we will see a retracement ahead of any further weakness. Rallies are expected to remain capped by the 1.6060 4 month downtrend. Key resistance remains at 1.6185 and while capped here a negative bias remains intact.”
