As the possible news of Theresa May’s resignation is at the forefront of today’s market moving events, GBP/USD and associated cross pairs highlights as most volatile. On a wider scale, GBP ranks automatically tops on the volatility scale in comparison to its counterparts EUR, NZD, AUD and USD. Why volatility means GBP ranges are far wider than counterparts.
GBP has ability but previously lacked the necessary inputs. Current GBP/USD as mentioned yesterday is far overbought and desperately needs a correction. May’s resignation overall is viewed from a personal perspective as a tradgedy because I believed May would bring a great nation with enormous economic potential back to its proper role among nations.
GBP/USD range for today is located from 1.2520 to 1.2589. Below 1.2520 then next targets become 1.2512. Below 1.2512 then a free trade long exists. On the bottom side, GBP supports are strong and located at 1.2459 and 1.2384. Any GBP/USD price above 1.2576 enters the overbought stratosphere which means a price above cannot hold nor close in the region. Price spikes are meant to sell. Our target today is 1.2632.
GBP/JPY vital break points for today are located from 136.51 to 137.25. Current GBP/JPY is oversold particularly from MA’s 10 to 100 day.

Lower for GBP/JPY means further oversold.
