GBP/USD Analysis

I wrote last Wednesday that we seem to have been forming a top, but that we are also stuck in a range between about 1.7100 and 1.7160. Nothing changed on Thursday and Friday as we remained within this range, although we did print a couple of fairly bearish candles that fit within the topping pattern. Therefore, it looks like the next short-term move for this pair will be down.

In spite of that, there should be some long-term bullishness left in this pair, but the USD is strengthening across the board which supports the case for a pull back. This is probably not the best currency to short against the USD, however.

There is still likely support at 1.7048 and I will be looking for a long trade there if it is confirmed with price action. It would not be surprising if we get a fairly fast fall down to that level, but there is no news due today so it might not happen just yet.

GBP/USD Signal

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled for today concerning the GBP or USD during the London session. Therefore it is likely to be a very quiet day.
