    GBPUSD: key average platform points higher

    Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
    United Kingdom
    While conflicting signals for GBPUSD mean the immediate outlook is difficult to determine with conviction, our intraday studies are mildly positive. Asia has attracted some buying and so a retest of this week's highs is targeted.

    Mar Bunds - Negative move through average
    Steady selling pressure throughout Wednesday This confirmed the importance of Tuesday’s powerful upside rejection, with the downside extending through the 13 day mvg avg. That point is still only a pivot level rather than a trend definer, so immediate signals for sentiment still cannot be strong. But although intraday studies are overstretched we look for intraday rallies to prove limited.
    A reactive bounce should find sellers near 163.35 and there is downside potential to 162.70 or even 162.47. Only above 163.60 is bullish.

    162.70 target met. Intraday risk now at today's peak

    Momentum weaker than expected. Suggest reducing below 1.0020 instead of 12. Lowering stop to 1.0048, cancelling the sell rally strategy

    EURGBP tracking Keltner channel higher

    Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
    United Kingdom
    Amid positive signals for sentiment, sterling’s weakness in reaction to Brexit fears took the cross to its highest in 10 weeks. Almost half of the fall from October's peak has been regained. The cross continues to track the upper band of a rising daily Keltner channel with any profit taking setbacks likely temporary and limited.

    Little unlucky on risk selection here but I think it wise to keep away from this one. Market focus elsewhere tbh.
