The pound is faltering after hitting 1.5382 yesterday. From the fundamental side, people are muttering that yesterday's unemployment numbers aren't as good as they look and maybe it just sunk in that BOE has no idea what's going on—I say that based on the quote in the statement yesterday ("Some members considered the upside risks to inflation had increased slightly over the month; others felt that the balance of risks had not changed materially.")

The pair has pulled back to a low of 1.5258 so far this morning. This was a prior support area and served to support the pound again. My long position from 1.5138 is still in play. However, if the pair corrected further I'd be out and there are stop orders below 1.52 no doubt so a break below there wouldn't be good.

Support is at 1.5258, 1.5240, 1.5210, 1.5174, 1.4978, 1.4961 and 1.4873. Resistance is at 1.5332, 1.5382, 1.5520, 1.5415, and 1.5816.

Here's the one-hour chart:

My purpose in writing this blog is to show you how one trader, me, makes trading decisions and survives while trading Forex. One of the biggest problems I had when I first started trading was trying to apply the “rules” to actual trades. Another was the psychology—limiting losses and letting profits run. If you study my blog, you’ll see how I deal with both those issues. So my writings are not trade recommendations but rather educational in purpose. You have to decide on your own approach to trading. Remember that trading is risky.
