GBP/USD back to action after long weekend


May.27.2014

日本語版はこちら

Oh, hey. Just coming back to the markets from the memorial holiday and my head is still sleepy. Before we get to the forex dance floor, here is a quote that will help you jump-start your week:

 

“Whenever you leave behind failure, you’re doing good. If you think everything you’ve done is great, you’re probably dumb.” – Louis C.K.

 

 

And the pick of the day is GBP/USD, as Mr. British pound and Ms. USA came back to action this morning as U.S. traders came off a long weekend, and we have some hot economic events coming in the U.S. calendar. Core durable goods order was out at 8:30 am EST better than expected, the Conference Board consumer confidence reading will be out at 10 am, and Bank of England governor Carney is expected to speak at 3 pm. With all this we could expect some choppiness on the forex dance floor intraday.

 

On the daily dance floor the pair continues dancing within an upward channel above the Ichimoku cloud, with the RSI just a tiny bit above the neutrality area and not overbought.  The pair had a pullback towards the 50% Fibonacci level last week and now it seems well-directed to the upside. Our targets are at 1.704  and 1.74 in extension.  A downside breakout of 1.6450 would call for 1.62 and 1.5870 in extension. Intraday the pair remains under pressure and we could see more down moves below 1.6855 with targets at 1.68 and 1.678 in extension.
