Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5591, 1.5447, 1.5213
  • Resistance: 1.5823, 1.5967, 1.6201

The British Pound descended back to familiar range support against the US Dollar, unable to produce follow-through on yet another bullish reversal signal. Near-term support is at 1.5591, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 1.5447. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib retracement at 1.5823 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 1.5967.

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 that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
