Key Quotes

“The force appears strong in this one now. We noted earlier in the week that downside risks for the cross were moderating and that a strong close to the week—above 1.85—should add to upward pressure on the GBP as it would reflect the highest close in a month and likely tempt trend followers to jump on the long side of the trade and encourage short position holders to cover.

Technical evidence of a strong reversal remains absent but a moderation/consolidation in the selloff seen since January looks a reasonable expectation now and may allow the GBP to rise towards 1.88/1.90.”
