GBPUSD tracking negative Keltner channel lower



The importance of the capping of the topside by the 13-day moving average was emphasised by a strong move to the lowest levels for six weeks and the posting of a fourth down day in a row. In fact selling pressure accelerated and the scope of the moves mean that intraday sentiment is oversold. The potential for a reactive move is growing but studies are clearly negative as evidenced by the tracking of the lower end of a declining daily Keltner channel.
