Pound Gains while Clouds Loom on Horizon

The Pound gained well against the U.S Dollar during the holiday season, and yesterday’s results as full trading returned to the broad markets are intriguing.

Pound near Significant Resistance

The Pound is near a significant resistance level and with questions lingering on the horizon about the exact mechanics of the Brexit, the British currency may run into speculative selling pressure.

The Pound has a solid support level around 1.34 and some traders may believe this could become a focal point near term.

Timeframe Differentials at Work for the Pound

Trading scenarios are frequently different when timeframes are taken into consideration and the Pound may prove an interesting example of this concept.

The British currency’s gains made over the holiday may be put to the test in the coming days, and the unclear political clouds hovering over the U.K government may add to the scrutiny.
