Comparisons

In general, the Scot Ref traded/closed much closer to its ranges than the UK EU Ref has to date e.g. in the "comparative" last 5wks, Scot Ref opened at 1.6877 (which was its high also) and closed at 1.6300 (only 30 pips from its range low at 1.6270) so GU ate 570/600pips of its range - illustrating that the Scot Ref had much more directional bias since it traded and held its extreme levels.
Where as the UK EU Ref comparative 5wk period, opened at 1.4500 and closed at 1.4510, but with a range of 1.4340 to 1.4730, so GU only managed to eat/commit to 10/400pips that it ranged - illustrating that the UK EU Ref has lot direction commitment and 0 trend, it is a sideways ranging market.

Technicals

Scottish UK REF - 10 weeks = 14.July.14 to 18.Sep.14

- RSI , STOCH and RVI             sold off in the first weeks of the 10wk period, then remained severly under pressure for the remainder of the 8wk sell off - all of which failing to break 40 and posting lows of 13 with several <20s.
The event driven recovery between the 9th sep to 18th sep however helped the technicals recover to 50 levels.

- Historical vol             , traded in an uptrend during the first 8wk selloff from 2 to 11, before falling slightly during the recovery and spiking again to 10-12 around the REF date due to event volatility.

UK EU REF - 10 weeks = 18.April.16 to 23.June.15

- RSI and RVI             have been bullish , trading in the upper 60% all of the time, with several "overbrought" conditions arising at 70.

- Historical vol             has traded relatively flat, ranging between 6-12 with it ticking up in recent times to trade above 10 on most days now.

- Stoch oscillated throughout the period, with a bias to the downside, showing two oversold conditions of <20, illustrating the bullish trend as it was the little pullbacks that caused these conditions.

Hi, err we MIGHT see a pullback to 1.45 again BUT i wouldnt bet on it, you should never be long GU in june IMO. We may pullback to 1.45 breifly or this move lower is setting the new trend of down. i was short at 1.457, imo there was no way in june GU could trade above 1.45 for long - please see this article:

Hi, your idea was great. Unluckily I got the wrong advise from broker to go long as he was insisting it will for sure touch 1.47 by the end of week. I am so sad now as I blew up 14000usd account on Friday because of gbp long positions.
