Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.4926
  • Support: 1.4696, 1.4431, 1.4167
  • Resistance: 1.5023, 1.5224, 1.5551

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 38.2% Fibonacci expansionat 1.4696 exposes the 50% level at 1.4431. Alternatively, a reversal above the 1.4950-1.5023 area (January 23 low, 23.6% Fib) clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 1.5224.

We entered short GBPUSD at 1.4926, initially targeting 1.4696. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 1.5136. We will book gains on half of the trade and move the stop-loss to the breakeven level when the first target is reached.
