Dark Cloud Cover pattern warns of declines
A Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern on the four hour chart is warning of declines for the GBP/USD. This comes as selling pressure has once again capped further gains for the pair around the 1.6745 mark. With the range-top remaining in force a bearish technical bias is offered with a potential target at noteworthy support near 1.6610.
Traders should be mindful that the upcoming Bank of England rate decision will likely spark fresh volatility for the GBP/USD and may negate technical signals offered.
