If the British Pound continues along the path of this uptrending Gann angle then another resistance cluster could be tested on June 25. On this date, a downtrending Gann angle from the 1.6301 top drops in at 1.5901, the uptrending Gann angle from the 1.5268 bottom moves to 1.5908 and the Fibonacci level or 61.8% retracement price is at 1.5906. Based on this set-up, the near-term upside target is 1.5901 to 1.5908 on June 25.

Over the next week, British Pound traders should monitor the market’s move along the uptrending Gann angle. This angle should serve as a guideline if the market continues to move higher. A failure to follow this angle higher will be an indication that sentiment may be shifting to the downside. If this is the case then the market is likely to retrace 50% of the last rally from 1.5268.
