GBP/USD Doji On The Daily Denotes Indecision As Range Endures

GBP/USD Doji On The Daily Denotes Indecision As Range Endures

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • 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).
