GBP/USD Turns Gaze Higher After Bearish Candlestick Pattern Negated

GBP/USD Turns Gaze Higher After Bearish Candlestick Pattern Negated

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover Fails To Find Confirmation
  • Spotlight Cast On The 1.6450 Ceiling

The Pound has managed to hold its ground against the greenback after a Dark Cloud Cover pattern failed to receive confirmation. This leaves a Morning Star formation to guide the Sterling and casts the immediate risks higher for a run on 1.6450.

GBP/USD is left with a void of major reversal signals on the four hour chart. This suggests awaiting a more constructive setup may be a more prudent approach to playing the pair.
