Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:1.6816 (trend line), 1.6711 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance:1.6920 (May 21 high), 1.6996 (May 6 high)

The British Pound has come under renewed selling pressure, with prices once again set to test rising trend support dating back to early February (now squarely at 1.6816). A break below this barrier exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.6711. Near-term resistance is at 1.6920, the May 21 high, with a daily close above that clearing the way for a test of the May 6 peak at 1.6996.

Prices are too close to support to justify a short position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal warns against taking up the long side. With that in mind, we remain flat for now.
