GBP/USD is currently retreating from the monthly R1, but the currency pair retains potential to go higher from here. Above 1.4680 dollars the Pound should target the 55-day at 1.4740. If the latter resistance is breached as well, the rally will likely travel up to 1.50, the level where the six-month down-trend is reinforced by the 100-day . Our long-term bias, however, remains , and the negative outlook is strengthened by the weekly and monthly technical indicators mostly pointing south.
The sentiment is neutral, being that 51% of open positions are long and 49% are short. A similar situation is observed with the orders: 52% are to buy and 48% are to sell the British Pound.
