GBP/USD Analysis

It was an interesting day yesterday, which really started around the New York open with a strong, sharp drive down, the low of which broke and produced a further fall on increasing volatility to an area below 1.3100. However, the bulls then stepped in and drove the price all the way back up just a few pips short of the daily high. Overall, it was confusing and choppy action.

Although this pair is technically in a long-term downwards trend, the trend is really starting to flatten out, with the price not really making any new lows for several weeks and showing just as much impulse from the bulls as from the bears. We also see that even when the USD is strong, the price here falls by little or not at all. These are all signs of a seeming weakening in the downwards trend.

There is plenty of data due today and tomorrow, so anything might happen.
