Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Absence of Key Reversal Patterns Casts Doubt A Recovery
  • Crawl Under 1.6550 Floor Needed To Open 1.6450

GBP/USD remains in a precarious position as a void of bullish candlesticks suggests the potential for further weakness. A daily close below 1.6526 would open the March lows near 1.6450 while a corrective bounce would likely encounter sellers at the 1.6660 ceiling.
