Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern May Find Limited Follow-Though
  • Climb Over 1.6660 Needed To Suggest A Small Base

GBP/USD continues its cautious recovery which follows the appearance of a Piercing Line formation near the 1.6526 floor. Yet the bullish reversal pattern may struggle to yield a sustained recovery against the backdrop of a core downtrend. This leaves selling into rallies preferred at this point. A daily close above 1.6660 would be required to warn of a small base and the potential for a sustained recovery.

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