- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.5373
- Support: 1.5270, 1.5194, 1.4980
- Resistance: 1.5551, 1.5737, 1.5923
The British Pound looks set to continue higher against the US Dollar having taken out resistance at the top of a falling channel in play since mid-September. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.5551 exposes the 50% level at 1.5737. Alternatively, a reversal below channel top resistance-turned-support at 1.5270 clears the way for a test of a horizontal pivot at 1.5194.
We entered long GBPUSD at 1.5373, initially targeting 1.5551. A stop-loss has been set to trigger on a daily close below 1.5194. We will book profit on half of the trade and move the stop to breakeven once the first objective is reached.
