Strategy: Pending Short
GBPUSD sold off after putting in a Harami pattern below major trend line resistance that has capped the upside since late April 2011. Prices are now testing through the former top of a wedge pattern now recast as support to challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.6116, with a break below that exposing 1.6059. Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short at current levels and we will stand aside for now.
