The Pound Shorter

This strategy is based on the relationship between the British Pound (GBP) and the U.S. Dollar (USD). In 1858 an undersea telegraph cable was laid between the United States and England. This telegraph cable was used to transmit instant information between continents regarding the exchange rate of the Pound versus the Dollar. Ever since those days investors refer to the GBP/USD forex pair as 'cable'.

Attentive observers noticed that the price of the GBP/USD forex pair tends to go down on Tuesdays in the first half of the day. Investui includes the Pound Shorter strategy, which takes advantage of this particular price pattern. A short sell position on the GBP/USD forex pair is opened for six hours.
