GBP/USD full steam ahead; technicians pile in

By FXstreet.com | July 02, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.7159, up 0.05% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.7180 and low at 1.7140.



GBP/USD is relentless and Kit Juckes, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Societe Generale sums this up very nicely,“Depending on exactly how fine the lead in your pencil is, sterling is either in the process of breaking a multi-year resistance area, or has already done so….Speculators are long GBP, RSIs are overbought, the good news is all in, and I'm desperately wrong about where to sell it. It looks for all the world as though it will now stage a sharp spike higher as momentum, trend following and technical fans pile in”.
