The weekly open was holding strongly until we hit the afternoon portion of the New York session when sellers hit the market with force! GBP/USD eventually dropped a solid 70 pips before settling at the 1.6050 level.

I have been posting recently on the 88.6% fibonacci retracement level. It is a less common number than the widely used retracement levels of 38.2%, 50.0% and 61.8%. Nonetheless, this 88.6% holds a better risk/reward ratio. For GBPUSD, last friday's downward move retraces near to the 88.6% of 1.6000.
If there are no significant gaps on monday opening, i am planning to go long. Stop loss is below the previous swing low of 1.5975.
Long near 1.6000-10
Stop loss below 1.5750-60
First target profit 1.6100
Second target profit 1.6180
Trading is a mind game

Another day of consolidation then a break lower during the NY session! Those triple zeroes at 1.6000 held pretty well though!

If you were courageous enough to take that bullish divergence signal early in the Tokyo session, you could have earned yourself a smooth 50 pips!

The first half of the day was absolutely boring, but then risk aversion kicked in and took GBP/USD down for a sharp drop! Playing the break of 1.6000 would've turned out to be an day trade.

Hopping on the retest of the daily open would have been the only way to catch the smooth 100-pip rally during the London session!

We saw a nice little breakout above the PDH in the Tokyo session that extended well into the New York session thanks to UK's better-than-expected GDP report. That move alone was worth about 90 pips, son!

Pretty quiet day for Cable, as the pair pretty much stuck within range. Scalpers could have made a killin' playing that 1.6100 level though!

All we saw on GBP/USD was a slow and gentle slide that began at the day's opening price and didn't end until the end of the New York sesh.

Pretty quiet day for Cable, as we barely got any reports, not to mention U.S. traders were out thanks to intense rains. I hope all my homies are safe!
