GBP/USD Key Reversal Candlestick Formation Emerges On Rebound
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Piercing Line Pattern Awaiting Confirmation Near Recent Lows
- Dojis On H4 Chart Signaled Reluctance By The Bears
GBP/USD’s whipsaw has left a Piercing Line pattern in its wake. Yet the key candlestick formation may struggle to generate a sustained advance for the Pound. This is given the heavy selling pressure within the 1.6060/1.6100 region and the context of a core downtrend on the daily. In turn this casts the spotlight on the recent lows near 1.5950.
