GBP/USD Awaiting Validation Of Key Reversal Pattern

GBP/USD Awaiting Validation Of Key Reversal Pattern

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Flat
  • Bullish EngulfingFormation Awaiting Confirmation
  • H4 Chart Doji Reveals Hesitation From The Bulls

GBP/USD’s climb above the 1.5880 barrier has produced a Bullish Engulfingformation, which awaits confirmation from a successive up-session. If received it may herald a revisit of the former range-highs near 1.6170. Yet with signs of a short-term downtrend intact, a sustained recovery may prove challenging.

Below 1.5880 skews the risks towards the Mid-September 2013 low near 1.5770.

Traders should note the upcoming Bank of England Inflation Report and UK Employment Data hold the potential to spark significant intraday volatility for the Sterling. This may negate technical signals offered.
