Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Bullish reversal pattern forming on the daily chart
  • Bearish formations absent in intraday trade

GBP/USD faces a make-or-break session as the pair teases at an upside break of the 1.7170 mark. A freshly formed Bullish Engulfing pattern hints that upside momentum could rebuild. However, given the reversal pattern’s proximity to resistance, a successive up-day and breakout would be required to confirm the signal.
