Forex Strategy: GBP/USD Doji Suggests Indecision Amongst Pound Traders

Forex Strategy: GBP/USD Doji Suggests Indecision Amongst Pound Traders

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover suggests test of 1.6600 possible in session ahead
  • Daily remains void of bearish reversal pattern

Following a dip back towards the 1.6600 handle the GBP/USD bulls managed to regain their grip on the pair by the close of trading, resulting in a Doji candlestick formation. However, the failure to close above resistance at 1.6670 signals some indecision amongst traders and puts further gains into doubt.

Similarly on the four hour chart; several Dojis during intraday trade are further evidence that traders are questioning the ability of the Pound to push higher.

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. However, a Piercing Line pattern has also recently emerged and although it awaits confirmation, it suggests the bulls haven’t given up on the pair just yet.
