The GBP/USD pair took off during the session on Thursday as the “risk on” trade came back into vogue. The 1.58 level has been violated, but quite frankly it is just an “average price” for the pair. The real areas to pay attention to are the 1.5650 and 1.60 levels. The pair will continue to be consolidative going forward, and as such we think that this pair will be very choppy and short-term oriented in the near-term. The market does look as if it favors the upside, as the most recent low is slightly higher than the previous ones. We are going to wait until the session is over today in order to make a decision going forward, as the pair is in the center of the range.
