The British pound initially pulled back a bit during the trading session on Friday before turning around and smashing into the 50 day EMA. As we got there, the market did pull back a bit, and it should be noted that we continue to see a lot of noisy behavior overall. If that is going to continue to be the case, then I think it is only a matter of time before we see massive selling pressure. However, if we break above the 50 day EMA, then it is likely that we will then go looking towards the 1.25 level. At that point, I would anticipate seeing even more resistance.

The market will continue to be very noisy, as we have a whole plethora of problems in the UK that will continue to weigh upon Sterling. The Brexit is still a major issue, and we have talks going on this coming week that will of course cause a bit of volatility as well. Ultimately, I do think that we pull back, and start going lower but it is probably going to take some type of headline to make that happen. The question is not so much in my mind whether or not we pullback, but if we do it here, or if we do it at the 1.25 level. With the leverage in Forex, timing is crucial, so if you do decide to short in this general vicinity I would do so with a small position. You can always add to a trade that is working out in your favor.
