GBP/USD Consolidation Continues As Dojis Highlight Hesitation
- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short Pending
- Bears Hesitate As Doji Candlesticks Emerge
- Four Hour Chart Shows Signs Of Indecision

A similar Doji display on the four hour chart further suggests hesitation from traders near the bounds of an intraday band. A more convincing close below the 1.5960 floor would be required to pave the way for a descent on the 1.5880 barrier.
