NEW YORK (

) -- The pound may be hesitating against the dollar, following its failure at the 1.6614 level, but it retains its recovery tone set from 1.5779.

A clearance of the 1.6614 level will create an opportunity for additional strength toward the 2011 high of 1.6743, and then the psychological mark of 1.6900.

On the downside, the risk to our analysis will be a return below 1.6472 , but the bigger risk will be a break and hold below the Aug. 11 low of 1.6110. This will create room for more weakness toward the 1.6006 level.

Further down, the big support stands at the July low of 1.5778.
