GBP/USD Eyes 2014 Low With Bullish Candlesticks Lacking

GBP/USD Eyes 2014 Low With Bullish Candlesticks Lacking

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Lack of Bullish Signals Casts Risks Lower To 2014 Low
  • Bearish Engulfing Formation Signaled Intraday Weakness

GBP/USD’s woes have worsened in recent trade as an absence of reversal signals leaves the spotlight on the 1.6160 floor. If broken on a daily close basis the stage may be set for a more pronounced retreat to the October 2013 low at 1.5885.

Traders should note the upcoming US Non-Farm Payrolls report holds the potential to spark significant volatility which may negate technical signals offered.
