The British pound has rallied a bit during the trading session on Tuesday but has given back some of the gains to show signs of hesitation yet again. Ultimately, this is a market that is trying to figure out whether or not it can hang onto the uptrend, or if a much deeper correction is needed. That being said, this is a market that I do think is paying close attention to the 50 day EMA, and if we were to break down below the Monday candlestick, that probably sends the pair down to the ¥145 level.

On the other hand, if we can break above the highs of last week then it opens up a move to the upside. We are still in an uptrend, so in a way it is going to be easy to be a buyer of this market, so a breakout to the upside is much easier to get your head around. That being said though, even if we did pullback to the ¥145 level it is likely that it would still just be a pullback in a longer term trend. That being said, breaking down below the ¥145 level would then have the market challenging the 200 day EMA, which of course would attract a lot of attention from traders around the world.

As far as the upside is concerned, that break above the weekly high last week would have the market looking towards the ¥155 level.
