GBPUSD Classic Technical Report 07.23.2012

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below resistance in the 1.5722-69 area and are pulling back to retest the previously broken top of a falling channel set from the June 20 high (now at 1.5567) as support. For now, the move lower can be classified as corrective given the upside breakout on July 17. A break back below the channel top would neutralize upside pressure however, exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5381
