Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Shooting Star Sets The Stage For Further Declines

GBP/USD has plunged below the 1.6500 handle following a bearish signal offered by a Shooting Star formation on the daily. The key reversal pattern alongside a spike in volume suggests the potential for further weakness. A daily close below the nearby 1.6450 mark could open the 2014 lows near 1.6255.

An Evening Star offered an early indication of a possible correction for GBP/USD. While the pair has managed to regain its footing at 1.6445, a recovery looks questionable given the absence of bullish signals.
