    "On a trade-weighted basis sterling did very well last year and given the concern over inflation and competitiveness, that strength was probably unwelcome."
    - Societe Generale (based on Reuters)

    Pair's Outlook
    Yesterday, the Cable completed a pullback after it had breached the accelerated falling trend-line earlier this week. Accordingly, even though the indicators are bearish, there is a good possibility the currency pair will rebound from the new formidable demand area around 1.4230, consisting of the trend-line, 2010 low, and weekly pivot point. The target for the next several days is therefore at 1.44 dollars, where the monthly S2 merges with the weekly R1 and 20-day moving average.

    Traders' Sentiment
    Cheaper Sterling spurred buying, and the share of longs in the SWFX market increased from 61 to 65%. However, the percentage of buy commands declined, from 58 to 45%.
