- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.5319, 1.5175, 1.5058
- Resistance: 1.5551, 1.5784, 1.5928
The British Pound pushed higher for a seventh consecutive day, extending an expected rebound against the US Dollar. A daily close above the February 26 high at 1.5551 exposes the 123.6% Fibonacci extension at 1.5784. Alternatively, a turn below the 76.4% level at 1.5319 clears the way for a test of the 61.8% Fib at 1.5175.
The longer-term GBPUSD trend continues to appear bearish. As such, we will treat the current upswing as a correction within the context of a broader decline and wait for upside momentum to fizzle and produce an actionable sell signal to enter short.
