Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:1.7136, 1.7093, 1.7039
  • Resistance:1.7180, 1.7234, 1.7322

The British Pound may be carving out a top against the US Dollar as prices show a Hanging Man candlestick coupled with negative RSI divergence. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.7108 (a barrier reinforced by a rising trend line set from early June) on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 23.6% level at 1.7064. Alternatively, a reversal above the 61.8% Fib expansion at 1.7180 opens the door for a test of the 76.4% threshold at 1.7234.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices sitting in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now.
