The four hour chart offered an early indication of a potential pullback for GBP/USD. An Evening Star formation near 1.6500 suggested the bears had regained control of prices. Yet the pair is left with a void of major reversal signals at the outset of the week. This suggests awaiting a more constructive setup may be a more prudent approach to playing the Pound.
