Bouncing to GBP/USD, they are bearish and note that yesterday´s sharp sell off was staged from just under resistance at 1.5269. They feel that focus is on support at 1.5027, and a break below this would open 1.4832. Finally, they shift to USD/CHF and add that they are bullish on the pair. They write, “While support at 0.9429 holds, there is potential for resumption of strength. Resistance is at 0.9567 ahead of 0.9636.”
