Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6667-80 (Jan 24 high, 14.6% Fib ret.), 1.6593 (23.6% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.6822 (Feb 17 high)
The British Pound is attempting to carve out a top against the US Dollar, with prices edging lower after showing a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Closing below support in the 1.6667-80 area, marked by the January 24 high and the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 23.6% level at 1.6593. Near-term resistance is at 1.6822, the February 17 swing high.

Taking a short position looks premature for now absent confirmation of a support break on a daily closing basis. A clear-cut bullish reversal is absent however, arguing against the long side. We will continue to monitor price action from the sidelines for now, looking for a viable short entry signal.
