GBP/USD Bounce to be Used to Add to Short

GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5662, Targeting 1.5131

Floating Profit / Loss: +390 pips

We entered short GBPUSD at 1.5662. Prices have now surpassed our second objective at 1.5296. A Hammer candlestick above support at 1.5131, the 100% Fibonacci expansion, warns that a corrective bounce may be ahead. We will continue to hold short, treating an advance from here as an opportunity to add to our position. A move back above 1.53 exposes the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1.5416. The stop-loss has been revised to be triggered on a close above the breakeven point (1.5662).
