- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.4950, 1.4696, 1.4431
- Resistance: 1.5224, 1.5551, 1.5653
The British Pound is digesting losses having turned lower against the US Dollar as expected following the appearance of a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close below the January 23 low at 1.4950 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.4696. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% level at 1.5224 clears the way for a test of February 26 high at 1.5551.
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.
