GBP/USD Rebound Falters As A Hanging Man Shifts Risks Lower
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Hammer Confirmation Warns Of Weakness For The GBP
- Spotlight Cast On The 2014 Low Near 1.6060
GBP/USD’s recovery has stumbled after the appearance of a Hanging Man candlestick, which has left the pair with bearish cues. The key reversal pattern has been confirmed by a successive down-day which casts the immediate risk lower. Buying interest is likely to be renewed at the 1.6060 mark.
Traders should note that there are several significant pieces of event risk over the remainder of the week that hold the potential to catalyze significant volatility for the Pound. This may negate technical signals offered.
