  • Daily close above 1.7000 suggests conviction amongst bulls
  • Dark Cloud Cover pattern awaiting confirmation on the daily

GBP/USD’s retreat from the 1.7040 mark has yielded a Dark Cloud Cover pattern, which offers an ominous warning for the pair. A daily close below 1.7000 would help offer confirmation of the signal and enough conviction amongst the bears to open the 1.6900 mark.
