GBP/USD Risks Skewed To The Downside Amid Absence Of Reversal Signs

GBP/USD Risks Skewed To The Downside Amid Absence Of Reversal Signs

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence of Reversal Patterns Casts Risk Lower
  • H4 Chart Casts Doubt On A Corrective Bounce

GBP/USD has pushed past the critical 1.5880 barrier with key reversal candlesticks absent. This suggests the risks may be skewed to the downside for the pair and opens a potential descent on the Mid-September 2013 low near 1.5770. A climb back over the 1.5880 hurdle would be required to negate a bearish technical bias.
