GBP/USD Recovery Regains Traction With Bullish Pattern Left Near Lows

GBP/USD Recovery Regains Traction With Bullish Pattern Left Near Lows

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Ling Pattern Signaled A Shift In Sentiment
  • Bullish Engulfing Formation Heralded Intraday Gains

GBP/USD has managed to regain some momentum after a Piercing Line pattern was left in its wake. While initially met with little fanfare the reversal signal suggests the bears are in retreat. A more convincing close above the 1.6170 barrier may open the 1.6400 ceiling.
