GBP/USD Bearish Engulfing Pattern Warns Of Intraday Dip

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

GBP/USD is at a crossroads after a Hanging Man formation offered a reversal signal near noteworthy resistance at 1.7170. While the candlestick failed to find confirmation from a successive down period, it signifies hesitation from the bulls to push the Pound higher. A pullback is likely to find support at 1.7040.
