- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.5576, 1.5490, 1.5382
- Resistance: 1.5663, 1.5770, 1.5837
The British Pound remains under pressure against the US Dollar, with prices extending the latest leg of the selloff for a fifth consecutive day. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansionat 1.5576 exposes the 61.8% level at 1.5490. Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib at 1.5663 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% expansion at 1.5770.
Prices are wedged too tightly between near-term up- and down-side technical barriers to justify taking a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for the time being, waiting for a more compelling opportunity to present itself.
