Bullish above uptrend at 1.3868

“GBP/USD failed to crack above 1.4238/45 yesterday – this is the recent high and the March 2018 high. The new high was accompanied by a large divergence of the daily RSI and it did in fact chart a key day reversal.”  

“Our attention has reverted to the downside and loss of the 20-day ma at 1.4123 should refocus attention on nearby support at 1.4000/18. Below here lie the uptrends lie at 1.3868 and 1.3933.”

“Longer-term view will remain positive above the uptrends at 1.3868 and 1.3933. We eventually look for gains through 1.4245 to 1.4377 the 2018 high.”
