Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.6233
  • Support: 1.5954, 1.5819, 1.5653
  • Resistance: 1.6088, 1.6255, 1.6486

The British Pound accelerated downward against the US Dollar, tumbling to the weakest level in 11 months. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5954 exposes the 61.8% level at 1.5819. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 38.2% Fib at 1.6088 opens the door for a test of the 1.6255, the intersection of the 23.6% expansion and a falling trend line set from mid-July.

We entered short GBPUSD at 1.6233 and have since taken profit on half of our exposure. The rest remains open to capture any further downside momentum with a stop-loss the breakeven level (1.6233).
