Rate falls back to open Asia but rallies to trade better on the day after MPC Blanchflower comments fail to depress the rate; light stops seen on the move over the 1.3700 area as late shorts get squeezed. Aggressive bids seen and the rate recovers as New York trades. Two-way action continues suggesting that shorts are aggressively adding and longs are trying to find a bottom with shorts losing this morning. Stops and aggressive selling drive the rate to a 23.0 year low last week. Short-squeeze delayed after first attempt to rally was sold back. Overnight economic news seen as neutral to bearish; rate trading on technical’s now. Signs of the bottom may be showing up as smart buyers reported in GBP Wednesday and Thursday night last week. Spillover from EURO likely but modest. Look for two-way action into this bottom. A short-covering rally is increasingly likely now. Late sellers likely in or hurting.
