Consolidation below 1.6000 would put the Pound on its way to 1.5836, according to Mohammed Isah, technical analyst at FXTechstrategy: it now requires a decisive break and hold below its psycho level at 1.6000 to signal a recapture of the 1.5830 level, its Dec 30'09 low (though seen holding below the 1.6000 level as the time of this analysis).
