Forex Strategy - GBP/USD Dojis Signal Struggle To Reclaim 1.6770

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Range between 1.6600 and 1.6765/70 intact
  • Dark Cloud Cover on weekly warns of larger correction

This week will be critical for the Pound as the pair threatens a downside break of the recent trading range. Several successive short sessions suggests conviction may not be strong enough amongst the bulls to push prices back to the 1.6770 top. A break of the range-bottom at 1.6600 would open up the 50% Fib Retracement level at 1.6540.

The ominous Dark Cloud Cover formation on the weekly at multi-year resistance also remains on the radar, and is threatening a more significant correction ahead for the Pound. A potential target is offered by the 23.6% Fib Retracement Level near 1.6350.
