Far Esm: buy from "1.55 - 1.5520" to "1.56"

Just closed at 1.540 from the earlier 1.56 entry, these 60 pips are fine for now, will look to spot a buy trade to enter in the coming days, for now will let the bears exhaust themselves at around the 1.548 mark or possibly lower before the bullish takeover signals can be seen and acted upon, best wishes.

Hi Abid.....yesterday was a crazy day, as I wrote before I did expect some buyers at 1.5560s, but I did not expect that pingpong action all day long......

mix headlines keeping the cable in this compression zone. until that 15570 gets broken below and held, the charts is favouring the bulls. the cable party has moved to the other crosses, good action with the gbp/aud today

check out the battle at the 200EMA on the H4 on Cable. Bulls cannot let the bears prevail.

if the US data wasn't coming up and the rsi wasn't below 50, i would enter a long here.

like Mitch it would be only for a scalp play, being mindful of those mid 156s

Any one knows GBP data was positive but it trend in down position about 60 pips from 1.5640 to 1.5575

Hi Adnan, it looks like the GBP data is taking a back seat to the larger USD sentiment across the market. The GBP is also priced to perfection IMO, it will need some very impressive data (not just a slight beat) on its own to maintain the uptrend when other currencies are going reverse against USD.

I think 1.5560 should see some buyers, but might be just a scalp

morning folks. Now that was some serious bear defence of that 15680 level last week on good tick volume too. Until we break and hold above, I'm keeping a bearish stance and will look to sell at the fringes playing intraday - will be playing tight because if that breaks, we likely going to see a good run up - if the news later support it. happy new month to all and hope you have a good one coming up.

morning Zach :) the 1.5660 level has been breached many times before therefor getting weaker everytime, we need good momemtum to break it, and ceiling would turn into floor. what do u think ?
zachary ..
zachary .. Aug 03, 2015 09:57AM GMT
Hi Mari, agreed, we need to breach that 15560-80 and hold and we havent done that for 2 weeks. the bears really defended that on last friday spike on high tick volume. bulls will need good news in the US later to break that level I think. This month I am looking to play general USD strength and cable weakness so will be inclined to look for sell opportunities.

zachary .. Aug 03, 2015 10:05AM GMT
actually we haven't done that for one whole month. Cable currently looks more like an intraday option for me. For that big swing play, I have my sights on the CAD - waiting.
