GBP/USD Short Position Profits Booked
GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Exit Short Position
Final Profit / Loss: +400 pips
We entered short GBPUSD at 1.5533. Prices met our second objective but signs of reversal have emerged above support at 1.5029, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. The pair has completed a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern and cleared resistance at the top of a falling channel set from early May. Positive RSI divergence reinforces the case for an upside scenario. We will book profits here and look to re-enter when a new sell signal presents itself.
