Sterling Digest, 16 July 2013: beware the squeeze

The squeeze always shakes out the weak. Don’t be weak.

Sterling sits on a fence depending on which currency you trade it against. After hitting new 2013 lows last week, the $GBPUSD has since rallied as high as 1.5220. Unable to get back below 1.50, there is a threat that cable rallies even higher. The $GBPAUD, after hitting new 2013 highs, has since retreated back to 1.6350. The $EURGBP is enjoying a nice, albeit slow, breakout to the upside reaching as high as 0.8700. While this week’s data threatens to be GBP-negative, particularly the release of the Bank of England meeting minutes, pay attention to price action. Lower prices may simply translate to better buy opportunities for rallies. With many GBP bears in the market, the squeeze higher could come slowly and painfully. Be aware.
