GBP/USD Doji Deluge Endures As Indecision Persists

GBP/USD Doji Deluge Endures As Indecision Persists

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Bears Hesitate As Doji Candlesticks Emerge
  • Four Hour Chart Shows Signs Of Indecision

GBP/USD’s enduring sideways drift has left a medley of Doji candlesticks in its wake, which signal indecision from traders. Despite the proximity to key support at 1.5880 a lack of bullish reversal patterns casts doubt on a bounce. This leaves clearer cues from candlesticks desired in order to offer a more definitive technical bias.

A similar display of short body candles on the four hour chart further suggests hesitation from traders near the upper bounds of an intraday band. A breakout beyond the narrow corridor is required to offer a more constructive setup for the pair.
