GBPUSD – Retail trading crowds remain heavily short the British Pound versus the US Dollar, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment has left us in favor of further GBP gains.
Trade Implications – GBPUSD: Last week we wrote that extremely one-sided sentiment warned that the Sterling could soon turn lower, and a break below $1.7000 would act as confirmation of an important reversal. Of course price continues to consolidate near multi-year peaks, and we see little reason to call for a significant turn. Our focus remains on a potential run towards $1.7300 as long as price remains above key support.
