GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Slumps to 7-Week Low

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6822-32, 1.6721, 1.6610
  • Resistance:1.6924, 1.6969, 1.7053

The British Pound dropped to the lowest level in seven weeks against the US Dollar having topped as expected after showing a Hanging Man candle with negative RSI divergence. Near-term support is in the 1.6822-32 area, marked by the February 17 high and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A break below that on a daily closing basis exposesthe 50% level at 1.6721.Alternatively, a reversal above rising trend line support-turned-resistance at 1.6924 opens the door for a test ofthe 23.6% Fib at 1.6969.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices trading in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now.
