- Missing bearish reversal pattern suggestsscope for gains
The stage was set for a push to multi-year highs for GBP/USD after the daily chart failed to yield a key reversal pattern near 1.7000. A daily close above the 1.7040 mark would signal strong conviction amongst the bulls and a push to the next psychologically-significant level at 1.71000.
