GBP/USD Harami Awaiting Confirmation To Suggest Corrective Bounce
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Harami Lacking Confirmation At This Stage
- 1.6760 Offering Intraday Support To The Pound
GBP/USD has posted a Harami candlestick pattern on the daily which if confirmed could afford the pair a small corrective bounce. A daily close above the nearby 1.6830 hurdle would be required to validate the bullish reversal signal and re-open the psychologically-significant 1.6900 handle. However, skepticism over a recovery may be warranted given the short-term downtrend remains intact with heavy congestion overhead.
