FOREX ANALYSIS: British Pound Sees Reversal Risk Near High

ssi_aud-usd_body_Picture_6.png, FOREX ANALYSIS: British Pound Sees Reversal Risk Near High

GBPUSD – Retail forex traders continue selling into British Pound strength against the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR), and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us in favor of further GBPUSD gains.

Crowds are now their most net-short GBPUSD since the pair last tested trading range highs of $1.6175. There is considerable risk that the British Pound may fail to break substantively higher, but our technical forecast likewise points to important support at $1.6100 and $1.6000.
