GBP/USD Recovery Falters As Dark Cloud Cover Awaits Confirmation

GBP/USD Recovery Falters As Dark Cloud Cover Awaits Confirmation

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover Awaiting Confirmation
  • Downside Risks Remain In Intraday Trade

GBP/USD has seemingly lost some upward momentum as suggested by a Dark Cloud Cover formation near the 1.6170 barrier. Critically, the key reversal pattern awaits confirmation from a successive down-day to be validated. Downside risks are centered on the pair’s recent lows near 1.5880. In the alternative scenario, a daily close above 1.6170 would open the potential for a run on the recent 1.6400 peak.
