- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.6459-79, 1.6378, 1.6296
- Resistance:1.6542, 1.6576, 1.6643
The British Pound has paused to consolidate losses after sinking below the 1.65 figure against the US Dollar. A daily close below the 1.6459-79 area marked by the March 24 swing low and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion exposes the 38.2% level at 1.6378. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib at 1.6542 opens the door for a test of falling trend line resistance at 1.6576.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
