The British Pound renewed its push lower against the US Dollar having reversed downward as expected after putting in a Hanging Man candle with negative RSI divergence. A daily close below support 1.6831, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 50% level at 1.6721.Alternatively, a bounce above support-turned-resistance ata rising trend line set from early February (now at 1.6919) clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib at 1.6969.
While entering a short position here is tempting, we will tactically opt to stand aside. We already hold long USD exposure against the Euro and the Canadian Dollar. As such, we think it best not to over-commit as heavy-duty US event riskcontinues cross the wires through the week-end.
