GBP/USD Recovery May Lack Fuel Amid Void Of Reversal Signals

GBP/USD Recovery May Lack Fuel Amid Void Of Reversal Signals

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Lack of Bullish Signals Casts Doubt On A Recovery
  • Dojis on H4 Highlighted Hesitation In Intraday Trade

GBP/USD has staged an about face in trading today, yet a void of bullish candlesticks leaves a question mark over a further recovery. Buying interest appears evident at the 1.6170 floor, which if broken would warn of a retest of the 2014 lows near 1.6060.

The four hour chart is dotted with Doji candlesticks which highlights hesitation from the bears near the 1.6150 floor. Yet in a similar fashion to the daily, there is an absence of bullish candlestick formations. This in turn may leave the Pound lacking the fuel to push higher over the session ahead.
