GBP/USD Analysis

Last week closed up as a bullish engulfing candle, the first that there has been for some time. This might be an early indication that a move up is beginning, and we have breached and successfully retested a key bearish trend line. When happens at the next serious test of the next key resistance level at 1.5789 is quite likely to determine the direction for the rest of this week.

Below, the support at 1.5650 is starting to look significant.

GBPUSD 121514

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today directly concerning either the GBP or the USD. It will probably be a quiet day today for this pair.
