GBP/USD Short Trade Held Below 1.53
GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5662 and 1.5155, Targeting Below 1.5040
Net Floating Profit / Loss: +325 pips
We entered short GBPUSD at 1.5662 and added to the position at 1.5155. Prices are now consolidating above support in the 1.5040-91 area marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion and a horizontal pivot level. A break below that aims for the 23.6% Fib at 1.4904. Resistance is in the 1.5260-1.53 region, defined by the March 25 high and a previously broken range bottom dating back to 2010. A close above 1.53 on a daily closing basis will trigger out stop-loss.
