GBP/USD Doji On The Daily Denotes Indecision As Range Endures
- Strategy: Flat, Short Pending On Close Below 1.5585
- Searching For Direction As Denoted By A Doji On The Daily
- H4 Short Body Candle and Doji Medley Indicates Indecision
GBP/USD’s sideways range endures with a Doji on the daily suggesting traders remain indecisive on the pair. This leaves a more a more constructive setup desired to offer a positioning bias. A close below the range-floor at 1.5585 would likely reignite more powerful negative sentiment and may open the 1.5425 barrier (the late August ’13 low).
