- Resistance: 1.4984, 1.5093, 1.5201
The British Pound continues to consolidate near the middle of the range containing price action against the US Dollar since mid-March. A daily close abovethe 1.4950-84 area (January 23 low, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement) exposes the 50% level at 1.5093. Alternatively, a reversal back below pivot resistance-turned-support at 1.4825 clears the way for a test of the 50% Fib expansion at 1.4706.
Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
