GBP/USD Primed For Push Higher On Daily Close Above 1.7000

GBP/USD Primed For Push Higher On Daily Close Above 1.7000

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Daily close above 1.7000 needed to suggest conviction amongst bulls
  • Absence of bearish reversal pattern indicates potential for gains

GBP/USD may be primed to run on its August 2009 high if the pair can close above the critical 1.7000 handle on the daily. While a Doji formation signaled some signs of hesitation from traders, there’s an absence of bearish reversal patterns which further suggests the potential for a push higher.

Drilling down to the four hour chart, the deliberation amongst traders shy of the 1.7000 mark is made further evident by several short body candles. While a Hanging Manformation offered a signal of a potential pullback, it failed to find confirmation from an ensuing down-period. This leaves bearish reversal patterns absent at this stage, which precludes a correction.
