Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence of Key Reversal Patterns Keeps Risk Lower
  • Crawl Under 1.6550 Floor Needed To Open 1.6450

GBP/USD is recovering lost ground in Asian trading, yet a sustained advance may prove difficult with a void of reversal patterns on the radar. Clearance of the 1.6550 hurdle would likely open the March lows near 1.6450.

The four hour chart paints a divergent picture to the daily. A Hammer formation may be offering an early indication of a bounce over the remainder of the session. A close above former support-turned-resistance at 1.6567 would be required to open the 1.6660 ceiling.
