GBP/USD Pushes Off Support As Piercing Line Pattern Forms

GBP/USD Pushes Off Support As Piercing Line Pattern Forms

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Harami on the daily finds little follow-through
  • Piercing Line pattern forming near key support

GBP/USDhas bounced off key support at 1.6820 after posting some modest declines on the back of a Harami candlestick pattern. The recovery appears to be forming a Piercing Ling pattern which would be indicative of bullish momentum recovering. A push back above 1.6900 would be seen as an opportunity to enter new long positions with a target offered by 1.6995.
