GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Rally Rejected at Trend Line

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Rally Rejected at Trend Line

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5612, 1.5524, 1.5380
  • Resistance: 1.5737, 1.5824, 1.5916

The British Pound advanced against the US Dollar as expected after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above falling trend line resistance at 1.5737 exposes a horizontal pivot marked by the November 6 low at 1.5824. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5612 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% level at 1.5540.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
