GBP/USD – Awaiting Resolution to Sideways Trade
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
-I wrote last update that “the specter of a head and shoulders top since 11/4 indicates potential for bearish resumption. Bear in mind that the noted pattern wouldn’t complete until a drop under 1.2300, in which case focus would shift to the former trendline resistance and 10/25 low at 1.2082.” GBP/USD never traded below 1.2300. Instead the rate has drifted sideways in continued consolidation. Pattern and direction is unclear from my perspective.
