Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts preferred
  • Failure to break above range-top offers bearish bias
  • Shooting Star warns that recent declines may continue

A Shooting Star candlestick on the daily chart for GBP/USD near a critical multi-year resistance level is warning of a correction for the pair. The formation has received confirmation from a successive down day and in tandem with a shift in the trend (signaled by the 20 SMA) a bearish technical bias is offered.

Buying support is likely to emerge near the psychologically-significant 1.6600 handle, which also forms the 38.2% Fib Retracement level. However, the bulls may struggle to push the Pound higher as signaled by the lack of confirmation for a Hammer formation on the four hour chart during intraday trade.
