GBP/USD Cautious Climb Resumes Post A Piercing Line Pattern

GBP/USD Cautious Climb Resumes Post A Piercing Line Pattern

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern Delivers Further Gains
  • Short Body Candles Denotes Indecision On H4

GBP/USD has resumed its ascent with a Piercing Line pattern in its rearview mirror. Yet alongside a core downtrend some skepticism over a further advance may be warranted. Selling interest remains evident at the 1.6170 ceiling. A daily close above the nearby hurdle would be required to open the 1.6400 handle.

The four hour chart presents an array of short-body candles, which suggests caution from the bulls to lead the pair higher. Yet an absence of classic reversal signals leaves a pullback as questionable over the session ahead.
