Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Longs preferred as gains resume
  • 1.6600 offering noteworthy support for prices
  • Potential target for longs at overhanging resistance at 1.6820

The GBP/USD has bounced off key support at the psychologically significant 1.660 level as bulls have once again taken charge on the pair. This follows the formation of an Inverted Hammer candle on the daily that suggested recent declines were nearing an end.

The reversal higher may see sellers emerge at the high for the year at 1.6820 which may offer a potential target for longs.
