GBPUSD: Looking for Short Entry Opportunities

GBPUSD: Looking for Short Entry Opportunities

Strategy: Pending Short

GBPUSD put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern after briefly piercing the 1.60 figure and reversed lower, taking out the lower boundary of a Rising Wedge chart formation to expose the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5771. Prices are now too close to support to make an entry short attractive from a risk/reward perspective and we will stand aside for now looking for a more attractive setup to present itself.
