GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Support Now Below 1.52 Mark

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Support Now Below 1.52 Mark

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5180, 1.5094, 1.4950
  • Resistance: 1.5322, 1.5471, 1.5551

The British Pound moved lower against the US Dollar as expected after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 1.5180, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing falling channel top resistance-turned-support at 1.5081. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% level at 1.5322 opens the door for a challenge of rising channel floor support-turned-resistance at 1.5471.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
