- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Support: 1.6676, 1.6625, 1.6573
- Resistance:1.6739, 1.6778, 1.6842
The British Pound is edging higher against the US Dollar as expected after putting in a Hammer candlestick coupled with positive RSI divergence. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci expansionat 1.6739 initially exposes the 14.6% level at 1.6778. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 1.6676 opens the door for a test of the 50% expansion at 1.6625.
Our bias is broadly bearish in line with a break of key trend line support in late July. We will stand aside for now and treat any on-coming gains as corrective, looking for an opportunity to enter short at a more attractive level.
