GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Sinks to 9-Month Low

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Sinks to 9-Month Low

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6215, 1.6113, 1.5950
  • Resistance:1.6296, 1.6378, 1.6459

The British Pound is sinking yet again, plunging to the weakest level against the US Dollar since November 2013. A daily close below the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 1.6215 exposes the 76.4% level at 1.6113. Alternatively, a reversal above the 50% Fib at 1.6296 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% expansion at 1.6378.

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.
