Within two months GBP/USD fell over 1100 pips from the top at 1.7190 to the low around 1.6050, where formed a small base to begin upward movement. We still have to remember about the huge gap from this week market beginning – price is now approaching this level. Certainly, UK surveys are helping here – they showed a slight advantage of Scots independence opponents (after action take by London authorities).

GBP/USD H1 chart

It is unclear how strong may be the pressure from investors closing short positions, but in our opinion, closing the gap at 38.2% retracement of latest fall (1.6282) may be only the first stop. We should not forget about 50% retracement (1.6350) which is exposed to price action.

Theoretically however, price range may reach even 1.6600 (current month opening and 50% retracement of whole downward wave at 1.7180). Price might stay in this area in the nearest future.
