GBP/USD Dark Cloud Cover Suggests Declines To Continue

GBP/USD Dark Cloud Cover Suggests Declines To Continue

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover offers bearish reversal signal
  • Bullish patterns absent in intraday trade

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

Drilling down to the four hour chart; an absence of key reversal patterns suggest the potential for an extended decline. Buyers are likely to emerge at intraday support near 1.6940.
