- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.7073, 1.7000, 1.6941
- Resistance:1.7173, 1.7243, 1.7301
The British Pound may be topping against the US Dollar after prices produced a Hanging Man candlestick reinforced with negative RSI divergence. Near-term support is at 1.7073, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A daily close below that targets the 38.2% level at 1.7000. Alternatively, a break above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.7173 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 1.7243.
Overall positioning remains inconclusive. Bearish reversal cues remain intact, arguing against taking up the long side. However, downside follow-through is yet to materialize, hinting that entering short is premature. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable trading opportunity to present itself.
