Cable possibly will move above the 1.5048 level if UK decides to “Remain” in the EU, while a “Leave” decision can push lower the pair below the strong support of 1.3840 level. 200 SMA is currently trying to offer dynamic resistance, but the overall sentiment around Referendum is stronger than the technical indicators at this stage.
