- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.4981, 1.4892, 1.4804
- Resistance: 1.5091, 1.5159, 1.5268
The British Pound is attempting to launch a recovery against the US Dollar having found interim support below the 1.50 figure. Near-term resistance is at 1.5091, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 14.6% level at 1.5159. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 1.4981 clears the way for a test of the 50% expansion at 1.4892.
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.
