GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5662, Targeting Below 1.5120

Floating Profit / Loss: +507 pips

We entered short GBPUSD at 1.5662. Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick on a retest of resistance marked by a falling trend line set from the January 2 swing high and the recently broken multi-year range bottom at the 1.53 figure. We will now add to the position, looking for the down trend to resume. Initial support is at 1.5120, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. The stop-loss has been adjusted to be trigger on a daily close above 1.53.
