The GBP/USD pair fell hard on Tuesday as the “risk off” trade came back into play. There is serious concern about whether or not there will be enough participation in the “voluntary” debt write downs by bondholders of Greek debt. The reality is the alternative is going to be horribly painful, so the odds are that we will get it. However, we won’t know it until 3 pm EST on Thursday. Because of this, the markets are taking a well-needed breather, and the 1.57 level below is more than likely going to be where we see buyers try to step back into this pair. The 1.55 and 1.53 levels below also look like they may attract them as well. We aren’t interested in selling because of this, and as a result – we are going to lay low at this point in time.
