GBP/USD Plunge Sees Inverted Hammer Candlestick Take Shape

GBP/USD Plunge Sees Inverted Hammer Candlestick Take Shape

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Plunge Leaves Bullish Reversal Signals Lacking
  • H4 Harami Fails To Find Follow-Through

GBP/USD’s woes have worsened after an absence of bullish reversal candlesticks dashed hopes of a recovery for the pair. An Inverted Hammer formation now appears to be taking shape in intraday trade. This could offer a precursor for a corrective bounce if confirmed by the close of the current candle and an ensuing up-day. However, against the backdrop of a pronounced downtrend a sustained recovery may prove difficult.

A Harami pattern suggested that the bears had lost momentum in intraday trade. Yet the key reversal pattern failed to find follow-through, which in turn casts some doubt over the potential for a recovery over the session ahead.
