Trading Recommendations

The pair was recovering from the fall after the Central Bank of England protocols were published. It is currently engaged in testing bullish offers near 1.5670. Still we believe that a return to growth will not happen soon.

The pound was unable to consolidate above 1.5770, we expect the development of a correction now. The pair is overbought and may fall to 1.53 in the next two weeks.
