“It is doubtful this rally can extend with news flow getting murkier.”

“GBP has done & dusted 76.4% Fibonacci retracement of 1.3217-1.2773, at 1.3109. Minor resistance stands at 1.3109. Clearing that pulls the trajectory to close off a near-term target around 1.3160, & GBP should mature the next price in the I-II-III sequence.”

“So in gist, look for GBP’s most recent rally from 1.2773 to enter its final phase. Once we get closer to that 1.3160 target, GBP should enter a fade-off opportunity. This view is only invalidated if GBP cracks higher and sustains a rally through 1.3258.”

“Also bear in mind – for GBP to exact a larger decline, it has to venture under 1.2669, 1.2620 – the head-and-shoulders pattern.”
