  • Harami near resistance suggests further falls ahead
  • Buyers likely to emerge near 1.6660

GBP/USDmay extend its recent declines following the emergence of a Harami candlestick pattern near the 1.6830 resistance level. Given the next noteworthy support level rests at 1.6660, there is some considerable room for a further correction.
