Odds were in favour of the 1.3750 level to hold on first touch, and it did. A break of this level opens up the broader range to 1.40 level, support levels layered at 1.35, 1.34, 1.33 all the way down to 1.32. Still a very bullish move within a bearish setup. 1.3750 continues to be [...]

As expected, we saw a healthy retracement at the beginning of the week followed by consolidation at highs. Cable bulls have to prove themselves with breakout of the bigger 1.6 – 1.57 range.
