- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.4706, 1.4597, 1.4463
- Resistance: 1.4825, 1.4984, 1.5093
The British Pound is stalling against the US Dollar as prices mark time near the middle of a now-familiar consolidation range. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansionat 1.4706 exposes the 61.8% level at 1.4597. Alternatively, a reversal above pivot support-turned-resistance at 1.4825 clears the way for a test ofthe 1.4950-84 area (January 23 low, 38.2% Fib retracement).
An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
