. GBP/USD - 1.5728... Although cable opened lower in tandem with eur/usd last Mon n fell to a fresh 14-month trough at 1.5541, however, rebound in the single ccy quickly led to short-covering in sterling, the pound ratcheted higher to 1.5757 on Thur b4 retreating to 1.5652. Price rebounded to 1.5746 Fri in NY.
. On the bigger picture, as cable's aforesaid 2014 low at 1.5541 was accompanied by prominent 'bullish convergences' on the daily indicators, suggesting the MT downtrend fm Jul's near 6-year peak at 1.7192 has possibly formed a temporary low there, a daily close abv 1.5757 wud add credence to this view, then price wud be en route to next chart obj. at 1.5826, break wud encourage for further headway twd 1.5875 (Oct's low), then 1.5826. On the downside, only a failure to penetrate 1.5757 res n subsequent break below 1.5626/30 sup wud signal correction is over n yield re-test of 1.5541, then one more fall to 1.5500/10, however, reckon 1.5360 (equality measure. of 1.7192-1.6052 fm 1.6525) wud hold.
