GBP/USD Probing Below 1.6900 With Reversal Patterns Lacking
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Evening Star Offered Warning of Weakness Ahead
- Void Of Bullish Signals Casts Doubt On A Recovery
GBP/USD’s woes have continued following an Evening Star formation on the daily near the pair’s 2014 highs at 1.7170. At this stage buyers appear prepared to support the Pound near the 1.6900 handle which could lead a small corrective bounce. However, an absence of bullish reversal signals casts doubt on the potential for a sustained recovery. A daily close below 1.6900 would open the 1.6830 mark.
