GBPUSD Pullback to Offer Favorable Long Entries- 1.57 Key Support

Notes: Sterling is testing near-term support at the median-line extending off the monthly lows after failing to breach above key resistance into 1.5940 last week. A break below this level shifts the attention to support targets at 1.5774 & 1.5750 with our bullish invalidation level eyed at the 1.57-handle / MLP support. Note that intra-day RSI has broken to its lowest levels in more than two weeks, suggesting that near-term momentum is waning.

Bottom line: the rally remains at risk near-term below 1.5878 with a break below the ML shifting the immediate focus lower. That said, we’d be looking for long triggers lower down with the broader topside bias in play while within this formation. Caution is warranted heading into US event risk this week with the May Durable Goods report & the final read on 1Q GDP on tap mid-week. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 31-34pips per scalp.
