Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: pending short
  • Dark Cloud Cover formation in intraday trade offers warning
  • Doji on the daily suggests bulls in Doubt

GBP/USD is giving back some ground after staging an exceptional run to its 2014 high near 1.6820 in recent trading. This has prompted a Doji candlestick to form which is signaling some indecision amongst traders. A successive down-day would suggest a potential correction to prior resistance-turned support at 1.6660/2

Examining intraday price action using the four hour chart below; there are signs the bears are re-emerging. A Dark Cloud Cover formation near resistance at 1.6815 is indicating the potential for further declines. A break below support at 1.6750 would likely open a fall to 1.6680.

This week’s gains for the pound have acted to negate the Dark Cloud Cover formation that had appeared near multi-year resistance for GBP/USD. The rally has arisen following a Piercing Line pattern which signaled the bulls were returning to the Cable.
