Next 1-3 weeks: “We highlighted yesterday (07 Dec, spot at 1.3425) that ‘we still prefer to wait for a daily closing above 1.3481 (high in Sep) before expecting a move to 1.3600 and beyond’. However, GBP sliced through the ‘strong support’ at 1.3320 and plunged to a low of 1.3225 before rebounding strongly. The risk for a sustained advance has more or less dissipated and from here, GBP could trade in a choppy manner within a broad range of 1.3200/1.3500.”
