  • Hanging Man warns of fading conviction from the bulls
  • Haramipattern highlights potential for intraday bounce

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 near the key resistance level.
