GBPUSD Near-term Support in Focus
Prepared by Christopher Vecchio, Currency Analyst
Price continues to pullback from recent highs, though by no means is the GBPUSD’s bull run complete. Instead, we find that the pair has entered a short-term period of consolidation. Key levels for the near-term are 1.5880/1.5900 to the upside and 1.5770 to the downside; we are also becoming overextended on shorter-term charts, suggesting that another failure at 1.5900 could lead to profit taking before further bullish price action. A daily close below 1.5770 should lead to a drop into 1.5700/20. Beyond that, support comes in at 1.5635/40 (last week’s low), and 1.5625 (ascending trendline support off of August 6 and August 10 lows). A daily close above 1.5900 points towards 1.5985.
