Forex Flash: Gilts set sights on 114.60-116.60 range – RBS

According to Dmytro Bondar, a Technical Markets Strategist at RBS, “From safe havens, Gilts look far less attractive, as a break of the recent ranges brought he market to the 114.58 retracement level (50% of 2012 extremes), while the former support of 116.00 has now turned into resistance. The overall bias is for a range of 114.60-116.60 with a possible recovery towards 117.80 if the latter is broken. However, this is unlikely to happen in the near-term. For the next week, we favor a range trade between 114.60 and 116.60. A break of 114.58 triggers a move to 114.00 and 113.14 – an upside break points to recovery towards 117.82.
