The US Dollar experienced a harsh sell-off on Thursday, mainly caused by the ECB's unexpected stimulus decision, as well as a set of weak US fundamentals. As a result, the Cable skyrocketed, meeting resistance only in face of the third cluster at 1.5145, namely the 20-day and the weekly R1. A correction is likely to take place today, forcing the GBP/USD to drop below 1.51, with the target support located at 1.5088 in face of the weekly PP. However, disappointment in the US employment sector could trigger a rally, causing the Sterling to return above the 23.60% Fibo.
Although the share of bulls remains unchanged at 56%, the portion of orders to buy the Pound added 38 percentage points up to 72%.
