GBPUSD: Candle Setup Hints at Upswing

GBPUSD: Candle Setup Hints at Upswing

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Flat

GBPUSD put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above resistance-turned-support at the upper boundary of a wedge chart formation carved out since mid-January, hinting a bounce higher is ahead. Near-term resistance lines up at 1.6291 at a major falling trend line that has capped the upside since late April 2011. Near-term wedge top support is now at 1.6153. We will stand aside for now and see how prices react on a re-test of the key resistance before entering a trade.
