GBP/USD Key Reversal Pattern Offers Hope To The Bulls
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Morning Star Pattern Hints At A Bounce Following Confirmation
- Sustained Recovery Questionable Amid Broader Downtrend
GBP/USD is threatening to complete a small base which follows the emergence of a Morning Star formation on the daily. The key reversal pattern has received confirmation from a successive up-day, which may open a push towards 1.6450. Yet some skepticism over the potential for shift in sentiment may be warranted, given several failed attempts by the pair to stage a recovery over recent weeks.
