GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Bulls Challenge May Top

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Bulls Challenge May Top

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

GBP/USD Technical Analysis – Prices advanced as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A break above resistance at 1.5465, the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement, has exposed the May 1 high at 1.5606.This barrier is reinforced by the underside of a formerly broken rising channel. A push higher aims for the 123.6% Fib extension at 1.5747. The 1.5465 mark has been recast as near-term support, with a move beneath that eyeing the 61.8% retracement at 1.5377.
