Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6533, 1.6470, 1.6407
  • Resistance:1.6613, 1.6661, 1.6762

The British Pound may be ready to launch a recovery against the US Dollar after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above falling trend line resistance at 1.6613 exposes the 23.6% level at 1.6661. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.6533 opens the door for a test of the 50% barrier at 1.6470.

Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
