GBP/USD Recovery Stumbles Amid Void Of Reversal Candlesticks

GBP/USD Recovery Stumbles Amid Void Of Reversal Candlesticks

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Absence of Key Reversal Patterns Casts Doubt A Recovery
  • Crawl Under 1.6550 Floor Needed To Open 1.6450

GBP/USD remains in a precarious position as a void of bullish candlesticks suggests the potential for further weakness. A daily close below 1.6526 would open the March lows near 1.6450 while a corrective bounce would likely encounter sellers at the 1.6660 ceiling.

The four hour chart paints leaves few directional signals for the Pound. A narrow range appears to have formed with short body candles indicating indecision amongst traders. Based on the bearish backdrop on the daily selling into corrective bounces would be preferred.
