- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Evening Star Offered Warning of Weakness Ahead
- Void Of Bullish Signals Casts Doubt On A Recovery
GBP/USD has extended its slide in recent trading after an Evening Star formation near 1.7170 offered an ominous warning of a correction for the pair. With an absence of bullish reversal signals, the Pound may be primed for a pullback to 1.6900 if the daily candle closes below 1.7040.

The four hour chart reflects a similar story to the daily with a void of key reversal signals casting doubt on a potential recovery for the Pound. However, GBP/USD’s descent may be slowed by nearby support resting at the psychologically-significant 1.7000 handle.
