As sterling has surged again after finding renewed buying interest at 1.3097 yesterday and broke above previous resistance at 1.3126, adding credence to our bullishness for recent upmove to extend further gain to 1.3250, then towards 1.3300, having said that, as this move is still viewed as the final wave v of larger degree wave C, reckon upside would be limited to 1.3340-50 and price should falter below 1.3390-00, then sterling shall retreat sharply from there.
Our preferred count on the daily chart is that cable’s rebound from 1.3500 (wave (A) trough) is unfolding as a wave (B) with A ended at 1.7043, followed by triangle wave B and wave C as well as wave (B) has ended at 1.7192, the subsequent selloff is the larger degree wave (C) which is still unfolding with minor wave (III) of larger degree wave 3 ended at 1.1986, hence wave (IV) correction is in progress which could either be a triangle wave (IV) of a complex formation but upside should be limited to 1.3500 and price should falter well below 1.4000, bring another decline in wave (V) of 3 for weakness to 1.1500, then 1.1200.
On the downside, whilst pullback to 1.3170-80 cannot be ruled out, reckon 1.3120-30 would hold and bring another rise. Only below said support at 1.3097 would abort and signal top is formed instead, bring retracement of recent rise to 1.3052 support but break there is needed to add credence to this view, bring correction to 1.3000, then 1.2980.
