Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6593 (23.6% Fib ret.), 1.6452 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.6667-80 (Jan 24 high, 14.6% Fib ret.), 1.6822 (Feb 17 high)
The British Pound may have carved a near-term top against the US Dollar, marked by the appearance of a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. The pair has edged past support in the 1.6667-80 area, defined by the January 24 high and the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposing the 23.6% level at 1.6593. A further push beneath that targets the 38.2% Fib at 1.6452. Alternatively, a move back above 1.6667 eyes the February 17 highat 1.6822.

Risk/reward considerations argue against taking a trade at this point and we will remain continue to monitor price action from the sidelines for now, looking for a viable selling opportunity.
