GBPUSD PRICE TREND MAY REVERSE
We sometimes take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the very fact merchants are net-long suggests GBPUSD costs could proceed to fall. But merchants are much less net-long than yesterday and in contrast with final week. Current modifications in sentiment warn that the present GBPUSD value development could quickly reverse larger regardless of the very fact merchants stay net-long.
