GBP/USD Recovery Stumbles As Shooting Star Warns Of Weakness

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern Finds Limited Follow-Though
  • Shooting Star Formation Awaiting Confirmation

GBP/USD’s recovery has faulted as the appearance of a Shooting Star formation warns of a further correction. If confirmed by a successive down day the key reversal pattern could herald a retest of the pair’s recent lows at 1.6526. Whereas a daily close above 1.6660 would be required to warn of a small base and negate a bearish technical bias.
