GBP/USD Technical Analysis: H&S Confirmation Pending

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: H&S Confirmation Pending

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5991, 1.5873. 1.5680
  • Resistance: 1.6184, 1.6377, 1.6532

The British Pound pushed upward against the US Dollar as expected after the appearance of a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracementat 1.6184 exposes the 38.2% level at 1.6377. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 1.5991 clears the way for a challenge of the 1.5873-93 area marked by the October 2013 low and the 23.6% threshold.

Prices may be carving out a Head and Shoulders bottom chart formation. Confirmation is needed on a daily close above 1.6184 to make for a trade-able setup however. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for the time being.
