Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.7026, 1.6988, 1.6929
  • Resistance:1.7060, 1.7113, 1.7176

The British Pound continues to drift downward against US Dollar as expected after the pair showed a Hanging Man candlestick reinforced by negative RSI divergence. Near-term support is at 1.7026, marked by the bottom of a falling channel in play since the beginning of this month. A daily close below that targets the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.6988. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 23.6% level at 1.7060 opens the door for a move to the channel top at 1.7113, followed by the July 2 high at 1.7176.

Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
