Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Range between 1.6600 and 1.6765/70 intact
  • Dark Cloud Cover on weekly warns of larger correction

The range between 1.6600 and 1.6765/70 for the Pound remains in force. While a test of the range-top looked possible yesterday, sellers at the 50% Fib Retracement level at 1.6690 acted to cap the GBP/USD’s advance. This has resulted in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern that is threatening a break of the range-bottom at 1.6600.

GBP/USD Range Remains Intact

A break below 1.6600 may open up the 50% Fib Retracement level on the daily at 1.6536.

The ominous Dark Cloud Cover formation on the weekly at multi-year resistance also remains on the radar, and may be warning of a more significant correction ahead for the Pound.
