    "This is more dollar weakness, driven by the market coming around to the fact that these economic releases are weaker."

    Pair's Outlook
    Yet again the US fundamentals weighed on the Greenback. As a result, the British Pound climbed up for the fourth day in a row, completely negating last week's losses. Moreover, the 1.49 barrier was crossed, and the GBP/USD pair closed at 1.4924. On Friday, a smaller rally is expected, although a possibility of a decline exists. The gains should be limited by strong resistance at 1.50, while a fall back towards 1.48 is the likely outcome if data releases disappoint.

    Traders' Sentiment
    Trader's outlook towards the Sterling slightly improved, as 43% of all positions are now long (previously 41%). The buy orders are now in the minority, taking up 47% of the market, compared to 63% yesterday.
