GBP/USD Creeps Towards 1.6170 Ceiling Following Bullish Signal

GBP/USD Creeps Towards 1.6170 Ceiling Following Bullish Signal

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Morning Star May Find Limited Follow-Through
  • Dark Cloud Cover Awaiting Confirmation On H4

GBP/USD has edged upwards in recent trade following the emergence of a Morning Star pattern. Although a bullish signal, the potential for a sustained advance may be limited given recent reversal formations have found limited follow-through. A daily close above 1.6170 would be required to open the potential for a run on the recent 1.6400 peak.

The four hour chart deserves close attention over the session ahead. A Dark Cloud Cover pattern is awaiting validation near the 1.6130 ceiling. Confirmation from a successive down-period would warn of a pullback towards the 1.6000 handle.
