GBP/USD Short Trade Held Through Upswing

GBP/USD Short Trade Held Through Upswing

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5662, Targeting Below 1.4830

Floating Profit / Loss: +471 pips

We entered short GBPUSD at 1.5662. Prices recovered as expected after putting a Hammer candlestick. The pair is now testing resistance at 1.5187, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break higher targets a recently broken multi-year range bottom at 1.5296. We will continue to hold short for now, with 1.5296now set as our stop-loss level (on a daily closing basis). Initial support is at 1.5051, the 14.6% level, with a drop beneath that aiming for the March 12 low at 1.4830.
