Cable remains well supported and continues to rally higher, with gap-higher opening today, surging through initial 1.59 barrier. The pair looks for test of psychological 1.6000 barrier and 1.6010, Fibonacci 76.4% of 1.6380/1.4812 descend. Break above short-term congestion and formation of double-bottom at the larger picture, sees scope for extension towards key med-term resistance at 1.6380, 2012 high, in the short-term. Positive near-term studies support the notion, however, bulls may be delayed, as hourly and 4-hour studies are overbought. Immediate supports lay at 1.5930, session low and 1.5900, while filling the gap on a slide below 1.5870, would signal deeper pullback.
