Cable continues to trade within a tight range mostly between 1.3110 and 1.3140 however with the up and coming Easter break and thinner liquidity in the markets there is a potential for some further peaks and troughs to be posted. The top level of resistance sits around the 1.3190 region before we can see a break out of this range higher and similarly, we will need to see a break below the 1.31 psychological figure before a move lower can be made.
EURUSD continues to give away gains as the pair retreats to consolidate around the 1.0960 levels this morning.
