GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Range-Bound Below 1.58

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Range-Bound Below 1.58

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5553, 1.5409, 1.5293
  • Resistance: 1.5641, 1.5772, 1.5916

The British Pound continues to oscillate in a now-familiar choppy range below the 1.58 figure against the US Dollar. Near-term resistance is at 1.5772, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1.5916. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 1.5641 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 1.5409.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
