Serge , you never mentioned any break of 1.658 ,furthermore , you should know by now that corrections are designed to fool the emotional trader(more than 90% of traders fall in this category) in order to enrich the trend follower .And always remember the News is always embedded in the long -term chart way before it's release because the logical trader anticipates it before the market makes it's move .

blue joff, Please be attentive: I wrote "I don't see any signs of resuming downtrend for nearest future unless we suddenly break everything and go to 1.658. I have my SL there." and you replied "What are you SMOKING??". Thus, I underlined that all of my analysis will only work above that level. We broke it, I lost via my SL, but I don't care, it was worth a risk for me. I care about average profit over months, and I am making it. My target is about 10 % a month, I don't need more. I often follow the trend, but if you have a look at, for example, bullish trend on GBP over last 1.5 years, not counting the major retracement that started 2 months ago, you will see that apart from bullish movements "in trend" price made a lot of corrections from upper side of the corridor. I don't use my emotions in trading, but I think it's a good idea to catch corrections for someone who CAN do it. I use pure technical analysis for trading, and my system works for me.

The Scottish referendum on Thursday is weighing down on this pair. Yes vote will mean a free fall; anticipation is rife that a yes vote will go through, so the dumping of this currency is in full swing already

Where are those 2 guys predicting 1.66 to 1.67 .in 2 or 3 days.

I was one, but I also mentioned that all of my analysis will make no sense if we break below 1.658, which happened long ago. I am holding a bearish position since, after my SL was hit. But we had good chances that the price will rise, it's just the news turned out to be bad for price.

Its not only the news, its the trend. There needs to be something significant to really make a trend change and right now for the last 6 weeks everything has pointed to a significant fall of this pair. Its going to continue for some time yet.
