GBP/USD Awaiting Clearer Guidance Near Range-Top
Strategy: Flat, Short Pending On Close Below 1.5585
Awaiting Guidance Near Key Technical Barrier
H4 Short Body Candle and Doji Medley Indicates Indecision
GBP/USD is kissing key resistance at the 1.5800 handle with a void of reversal candlesticks clouding the outlook for the pair. A bearish reversal signal near the barrier would recast the risk lower towards the 1.5585 floor. In the alternative scenario an upside breakout would herald a potential return to the 1.6170 ceiling.
