A Promising Break in The British Pound

The British Pound may be just on the verge of beginning a sizeable decline, and we have been talking with subscribers about when and how to recognize that a downward trend has truly begun. This article includes some essential points for those seeking a shorting opportunity.

The British Pound has been working through a corrective pattern since late 2007. The dramatic down-move in 2007-2008 counts well as a five-wave move, which we label as A, and it has been followed by a lengthy period of consolidation which we consider the B-wave. On the monthly time frame, the B-wave may be complete, since it has moved tested the area near two important log-term targets -- one Fibonacci-related at 1.6887 and another corresponding to the 2009 high at 1.6991.
