GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5536, Targeting Below 1.5385

Prices confirmed a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at the top of a rising channel with a bearish close on the following day’s bar, hinting a reversal may be underway. We will enter short from here, initially targeting the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.5385. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 1.5606, the Shooting Star wick high.
