Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Dojis Demonstrated Indecision Near Support
  • Harami Fails To Find Follow-Through On H4
The Pound has been afforded a small corrective bounce after several Dojis near the 1.6660 floor indicated an unwillingness to drive the currency lower. Nonetheless, recent price action remains suggestive of a short-term downtrend which leaves the immediate risk lower. A daily close below 1.6660 would re-open the April lows near 1.6550. However, the surge in real trading volume may warn of the potential for a more sustained reversal - a pattern evident over recent months for the Pound.
