GBPUSD: Standing Aside as Prices Test Support

GBPUSD: Standing Aside as Prices Test Support

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Flat

GBPUSD is testing support at 1.5383, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, a barrier reinforced by the lower boundary of a falling channel set from the late June swing top. Overall positioning suggests a bearish bias but risk/reward considerations argue against entering at current levels. We will stand aside for now until a more attractive setup presents itself.
