GBP/USD Woes May Continue With Bullish Reversal Patterns Absent
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Evening Star Offered Warning of Weakness Ahead
- Void Of Bullish Signals Casts Doubt On A Recovery
GBP/USD could see continued declines following an Evening Star formation on the daily and an absence of bullish reversal candlesticks. A daily close below nearby support at 1.6900 would likely see buyers step in at the 1.6830 mark.
Traders should note that a string of top-tier US data over the session ahead may spark significant volatility that voids some of the technical signals offered.

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.
