GBP/USD: 1-hour

Anyone interested in a trend play on GBP/USD? I know I am! With the dollar weakening over the past couple of weeks, the pair has been able to form a pretty sweet uptrend. Right now, it seems like the only thing standing in the way of it retesting its former high is the 1.5900 handle. If pound bulls can manage to cross this line, they may just coast back up to 1.6000. But if they’re unable to rise above this major psychological handle, you might be better off looking for signs of a breakout!

USD/CAD: 4-hour
