    FX Consultant / IFXA Ltd
    A blast of dollar buying crowned a choppy and drama-laden week, shortened for many by the US Thanksgiving holiday but rendered unforgettable by Turkey's downing of a Russian fighter plane.

    GBPUSD - Consolidation to end with selling
    Price action yesterday caught CABLE within the same broad range that had dominated the 2 previous days. Net movement was minor with the lows rejected but that bounce did not translate into significant demand.
