GBPUSD has been in a pretty extensive correction/consolidation mode for several months now. We've seen a couple false break outs and channels been ever so slightly redrawn - but it has stayed true to the overall structure. Pay key attention to the strength of the larger on the chart above and apply that strength to previous swing highs, you'll begin to see what I mean.
At the end of 2015 we saw GBPUSD confirm a break of the lower support on it's most recent support beginning in early to mid December, there are 2 things I want to point out for this. The that was broken was already in the direction of the 'recent' movements which means in order for this new trend to sustain itself it will have to explode in that direction. The main problem I see with this is that with just over 100 pips from current price levels... GBPUSD has it's 2015 yearly lows it hasn't seen since March.
I will be personally looking for signs of a reversal near these yearly lows (we're not quite there yet) or for the current strength to be broken as indicated on the chart.
On the flip side, it is possible that the yearly lows fail to hold, should this be the case I will look for a more accurate determinant of the important when price gets there, monitor the consolidation and trade the break out. I'm not comfortable looking for sells with the yearly support as close to price as it is.
