GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Rally Stalls at Channel Ceiling

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Rally Stalls at Channel Ceiling

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5180, 1.4980, 1.4750
  • Resistance: 1.5322, 1.5551, 1.5737

The British Pound pulled back from resistance at the top of a falling channel guiding the down trend against the US Dollar since mid-September. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.5180 exposes the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.4980. Alternatively, a push above the intersection of channel top resistance and the 23.6% retracement at 1.5322 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 1.5551.

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.
