Forex: GBP/USD back above 1.5700

Following better than expected trade balance figures coming out of China, and latest CPI in line with expectations at 2% YoY, down from previous at 2.5%, Cable is near session highs last at 1.5734, off yesterday's highs post Carney's hearings at 1.5770. The pair is higher for the week by some +0.25%, with weekly highs Tuesday at 1.5805, and lows at same day 1.5629.

According to CMT and FXstreet.com Independent Analyst Fan Yang: “A push above 1.58 will neutralize recent bearish price structure,” the analyst says, adding: “Otherwise a return back below 1.5625 keeps the 1.55 handle in sight,” he concludes. Against Euro, Pound gained traction pushing EUR/GBP cross down -1.24% in a single day alone, printing fresh 9-day lows at 0.8513, last at 0.8523.

Immediate resistance to the upside for GBP/USD shows at recent session highs/Jan 25 lows 1.5742/37, followed by Jan 24 lows at 1.5755, and yesterday's/Jan 29 highs at 1.5774. To the downside, closest support lies at yesterday's NY session/Monday's/Jan 28 lows 1.5683/74, followed by yesterday's lows at 1.5644, and Monday's fresh 5-month lows at 1.5629.
