GBP/USD Sentiment



"Cable's spent the last couple of sessions in a quiet consolidation below 1.7000. A move above that level would be the first sign of trouble for the shorts. Above 1.0725 , where we have a downtrend drawn off the 1.7190 top is probably the area to throw in the towel and regroup."
