The pick of the day is GBP/USD, as Mr. British pound continues to dance in an upward channel against Ms. USA on the daily dance floor. The pair remains above the Ichimoku cloud, rapidly approaching our  target at 1.704 but the RSI just touched on the overbought zone this morning. If you have been in the market since we first identified the new uptrend back in March, you could consider getting out of it just about now in case you don't want to risk a pullback. Otherwise you could stay in and enjoy the ride keeping in mind that there is a possibility that the pair continues to dance up to 1.74. Our next move would be watching out for this market to get saturated.

Now it’s May 1st and Europe is closed for May Day. I’m pretty jealous. On the fundamentals side the UK started the day with better than expected manufacturing PMI. UK mortgage approvals were lower and nationwide house prices were better than expected.
