GBP/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that “yesterday’s low around 1.3060 that may hold and act as a double bottom, driving price up against the long-term trend, so that is something to watch out for.” This is more or less what happened, and in fact it has formed something of a triple low. There is also a double top above at the upper end of the range, and so now we are caught in a very even range between about 1.3120 and 1.3060. We are quite likely to stay locked within this range until the key U.S. data release later at least.GBPUSD

There is nothing due today concerning the GBP. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change data at 1:15pm London time, followed by Crude Oil Inventories at 3pm.
