GBP/USD Resumes Climb Amid Void Of Bearish Candlesticks

GBP/USD Resumes Climb Amid Void Of Bearish Candlesticks

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Void of Bearish Patterns May Open Further Gains
  • 1.6450 Mark On The Cards Following Climb Over 1.6270

GBP/USD has resumed is ascent in recent trading with an absence of bearish candlesticks bolstering hopes for a continued recovery. The climb above the 1.6270 hurdle suggests a small base may have formed which opens the prospect of a recovery to 1.6450. Yet some skepticism over a sustained recovery may be warranted given the pair remains within the broader context of a downtrend on the daily.

Traders should note the upcoming Scottish Independence Vote holds the potential to spark significant volatility for the Pound, which may negate technical signals offered.

Choppy price action alongside a pair of Dojis in intraday trade indicates indecision amongst traders. While selling pressure remains evident at the 1.6340 barrier, a void of bearish patterns does little to suggest a correction.
