Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.5373
  • Support: 1.5322, 1.5194, 1.4950
  • Resistance: 1.5551, 1.5737, 1.5923

The British Pound has resumed its upward push against the US Dollar, with prices approaching the first target of our long position. Near-term resistance is at 1.5551, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1.5737. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 1.5322 opens the door for a challenge 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.
