Pair's Outlook
The Cable struggled to pierce the weekly R1 for the second day yesterday and is likely to have issues edging above 1.44 again today. The base case scenario is a corrective decline towards the immediate support cluster, represented by the 20 and the 55-day SMAs, the weekly and the monthly PPs, all around 1.4260. However, technical studies retain mixed signals, creating a possibility of the bullish development to occur, with fundamental data acting as a catalyst. The ceiling would then be the 1.45 psychological level, also being bolstered by the Bollinger band .

Traders' Sentiment
Market sentiment improved over the day, as 59% of all open positions are long (previously 53%). At the same time, the number of purchase orders dropped lower, namely from 52 to 43%.
