- Resistance: 1.5551, 1.5737, 1.5923
The British Pound renewed its upward push against the US Dollar after three days of quiet consolidation. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.5551 exposes the 50% level at 1.5737. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1.5322 5270 clears the way for a test of 1.5194, the intersection of channel top resistance-turned-support and a horizontal pivot.
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.
