  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Evening Star formation emerging on daily

GBP/USDis at a critical juncture as the pair trades shy of the psychologically-significant 1.7000 handle. While a Doji has formed on the daily, it may not be sufficient to suggest a correction at this stage. However, with a long down day now underway the pair is forming an Evening Starpattern. A close of the candle offer a key reversal signal and suggest a retreat to 1.6900.
