GBP/USD Eyes Further Declines With Reversal Candlesticks Absent
- Strategy: Short, Stop: 1.5770 (Close), Target: 1.5450
- Lack Of Reversal Signals Casts Risks Lower
- Intraday Chart Casts Doubt On A Bounce
GBP/USD continues its descent with a void of bullish reversal signals keeping the immediate risk lower. The push past the 1.5790 target alongside a short-term downtrend has opened the prospect of a descent on the 1.5425 floor (the late August ’13 low).
