GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5536, Targeting Below 1.5029

Floating Profit / Loss: +512 pips

We entered short GBPUSD at 1.5533. Prices have now met our second objective to test the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5029. We will continue to hold short, looking for a daily close below this barrier to expose the 50% level at 1.4850. The stop-loss has been revised to trigger on a close above 1.5322, the May 16 swing high.
