A mixed week for the $uros to poundsex pair, ended with a bearish flavour, following Wednesday and Thursday’s down candles, with a final much smaller down candle on Friday. Indeed Friday’s candle ended as a small doji, with the close finding some support from the 14 day moving average, suggesting that the recent reversal lower may now be over, and that we could see a resumption of the rally in due course, with a further attempt to breach the stiff resistance now in place immediately ahead at the 0.8850 region and above. For a sustained move higher we have to see this pierced and then broken for any further upward move, and this may prove to be too much for the pair at present. If this is the case then we could see a period of consolidation in the 0.8850 to 0.8450 price region which may well present several swing trading opportunities as prices move back and forth in this region.
