British Pound Long Term Cycle: Chart

Wanted to highlight an intriguing chart from Kevin. He points out that the British Pound is essentially trading in cycles over an extended time period, hitting a pivotal low every 8 years or so.

It will however be interesting to see if it can sustain such a cyclical movement given the extremely unique macro environment we are currently seeing. At any rate, take it for what it's worth:
