GBP/USD Missing Bullish Cues From Candlesticks Near Critical Barrier
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- BullishReversal Signals Lacking On The Daily
- Eyes On H4 For Early Signs Of An Intraday Bounce
GBP/USD is left at a critical juncture near the 1.5880 floor with bullish reversal signals lacking. A daily close below the nearby barrier would potentially open the way for a descent towards the mid-September 2013 low near 1.5770.
Traders should note that upcoming UK employment figures hold the potential to spark significant volatility for the GBP, which could negate technical signals offered.

The four hour chart reveals a Bullish Engulfing formation taking shape in intraday trade. However, the key reversal pattern requires the close of the current candle and a successive up-period in order to be confirmed. An intraday advance is likely to see selling pressure renewed at former support-turned-resistance at 1.5945.
