Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Support: 1.6533, 1.6470, 1.6407
  • Resistance:1.6599, 1.6648-61, 1.6762

The British Pound may be preparing to launch a corrective bounce against the US Dollar after prices put in a Hammer candlestick above the 1.6500 figure. Near-term resistance is at 1.6599, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a daily close above that exposing the 1.6648-61 area marked by a falling trend line set from mid-July and the 23.6% level. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.6533 clears the way for a challenge of the 50% threshold at 1.6470.

A Hammer candlestick represents indecision and does not amount to an actionable trade signal by itself. Furthermore, the break of trend line support set from February 2014 argues for a broadly bearish bias. With that in mind, we will wait for any on-coming bounce from current levels and treat it as a selling opportunity.
