GBP/USD Bearish Candlestick Pattern Casts Immediate Risks Lower
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Evening Star Formation Opens Risk Of Further Declines
- Bearish Engulfing Pattern Emerges In Intraday Trade
GBP/USD may be at risk of further declines after the emergence of a somewhat asymmetric Evening Star formation. The bearish reversal pattern casts the spotlight on the 2014 lows near 1.5880. A close above the 1.6170 ceiling would be required to negate the signal and suggest a bullish bias.
