PoD Chart

Good evening! We will start out the week with another attempt on Cable as the pair looks unable to continue its rise at the moment.

With no major economic reports expected for the European trading session, we may see technicals play out. We see that the 240 MA’s are moving sideways indicating that the pair is in range bound motion, giving a better chance of success playing tops and bottoms.

It looks like the pair is bouncing lower off of the top Bollinger band (2 standard deviations) and stochastics are trending slightly lower.

I am going to wait for a break below the previous low at 2.0375 and go for quick profits.

Short GBP/USD at 2.0365, stop at 2.0415, pt1 at 2.0340, pt2 at 2.0300

Remember to never risk more than 1% of your account on any single trade. Adjust position sizes accordingly.

Good luck everyone!
