- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.5025, 1.4903, 1.4805
- Resistance: 1.5100, 1.5172, 1.5269
The British Pound continues to consolidate in a choppy range below the 1.53 figure against the US Dollar. Near-term support is at 1.5025, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the intersection of the 38% level and a falling channel floor at 1.4903. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib at 1.5100 clears the way for a test of channel top resistance at 1.5172.
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.
