GBP/USD Crash Leaves Lack Of Bullish Candlesticks In Its Wake
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Plunge Leaves Bullish Reversal Signals Lacking
- Awaiting Break Below Support For Fresh Positioning
GBP/USD is left lacking key reversal patterns following a plunge towards its 2014 low near 1.6255. This raises a question mark over the prospect of a recovery. Against the backdrop of a downtrend shorts remain preferred. However, given the proximity to nearby buying support a daily close below the barrier would be preferred before adopting fresh positioning.

A similar narrative to the daily is evident in intraday trade. While buying interest has been renewed at the 1.6290 mark, reversal candlesticks remain missing. This leaves awaiting a downside break preferred.
