GBP/USD Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern Hints At A Bounce

GBP/USD Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern Hints At A Bounce

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Key support remains at the critical 1.6820 mark
  • Piercing Line pattern hints at a bounce in intraday trade

GBP/USDhas bounced off key support at 1.6820 after posting some modest declines on the back of a Harami candlestick pattern. Given the absence of a bullish reversal signal on the daily and nearby resistance at 1.6900, the pair may struggle to continue its recovery.

As noted in yesterday’s report the Evening Star pattern on the four hour chart hinted at a drop for GBP/USD during the session. The emergence of a Piercing Line formation near support at 1.6820 now suggests a recovery may be on the cards. Given noteworthy resistance looms at 1.6900, follow-through may prove limited.
