GBP/USD Bounce Produces Piercing Line Pattern Near 1.5880 Floor
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Bullish Reversal Signal Awaiting Confirmation
- Harami Pattern On H4 Halts Intraday Advance
GBP/USD’s bounce from the 1.5880 floor has produced a Piercing Line pattern. Yet recent reversal patterns have seen a limited response from traders. Alongside a core downtrend some skepticism over a recovery may be warranted. Selling interest is likely to be renewed at the 1.6170 ceiling. While a daily close below 1.5880 would potentially open the way for a descent towards the mid-September 2013 low near 1.5770.

The four hour may already be warning of fading upside momentum for the Pound. A Harami formation near 1.6025 is awaiting confirmation from a successive down-period, which if received, may herald a retreat to the recent lows near 1.5880.
