GBP/USD Analysis

The pair may move strongly today as this morning as there is an important news release scheduled for 9:30 London time: Services PMI data. There are also important USD data releases at 1:15, 1:30 and 3pm London time. The pair has been in a strong uptrend since early November, but sold formed a double top at around 1.6433 yesterday. It is in a widening bullish wedge and still quite far away from either trend line. There is no technical reason to say the uptrend has ended, so we maintain our long bias. I agree with Christopher Lewis that the best course is to wait for a pull back and trade long, although the levels I am prepared to come in are somewhat higher than his. There are key support levels at 1.6325 and 1.6257, with the latter likely to be stronger. Both of these levels are currently above bullish trend lines that stretch back to mid-November, and the 1.6257 level is currently confluent with it.
